Call to Action: The Building Civic Bridges Act (H.R. 6843/S. 4530)Mormon Women for Ethical Government
The Building Civic Bridges Act is expected to be reintroduced in September of this year. This bill, which has broad bipartisan support, would authorize $25 million per year to formalize efforts with regard to civic bridge building. It will establish an Office of Civic Bridgebuilding within AmeriCorps to research civic bridge building and social cohesion, train AmeriCorps members on bridge-building skills, and support bridge-building efforts throughout the nation.
