    About Us

Citizens In Conversation

DARING TO DIALOGUE

We form communities and engage in open dialogue on the important topics of the day. Creating connections locally is our first step in building supportive, trusting communities.

AT CROSSING PARTY LINES

All views are welcome.

All perspectives are appreciated.

All voices are heard.

“Learning the Crossing Party Lines approach to talk to people with different political views has influenced more than just my approach with talking politics. I find myself applying it any time I need to talk to someone who doesn’t see things my way. It’s really making a difference in my family, my workplace, and my entire life.”

Stephanie, Washington

“I didn’t believe it was possible. But I was wrong. I attended one of the Crossing Party Lines meetings in Portland and they were polite and respectful and interested in hearing what I had to say!”

Dennis, Tennessee
