Bridge Builders in Congress

Common Ground Committee

Location: Online

CONCERN IS GROWING THAT AMERICA’S DEEP POLARIZATION IS DAMAGING THE NATION. HOW CAN CONGRESS BRIDGE THE DIVIDE?

Polarization and division in the United States have reached such a point that they threaten our strength domestically and overseas. But today, bridge builders in Congress are making a concerted effort to work across the aisle and find common ground.

In this podcast episode of “Let’s Find Common Ground“, we interview two House members—Democrat Derek Kilmer and Republican William Timmons—about their support for The Building Civic Bridges Act and their work together on the House Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress.

We also discuss how bipartisan support for robust measures in response to the invasion of Ukraine may strengthen efforts to improve ties between Members of Congress of both parties.

This effort comes at a critical time. Recent polling found that about four out of five Americans are very or extremely concerned about America’s political divisions.
