Crossing Party Lines: Portland, OR
Join Crossing Party Lines for one of the first screenings of the documentary PURPLE: America We Need to Talk.
The film takes place in rural Wisconsin and Iowa, two swing states where “red” and “blue” still live in the same neighborhoods and where many people feel unrepresented by the two-party system. This politically pivotal region was home to the greatest concentration of counties that flipped Obama-to-Trump in the 2016 presidential election.
PURPLE is produced by Resetting the Table (RTT) – a non-profit organization that strengthens democracy through building collaborative deliberation across political silos in America today. We believe RTT’s approach to bridging the political divides complements what we do at Crossing Party Lines, and that this documentary offers important insights into how we can come together as Americans to understand one another’s concerns and humanity.
After the screening we’ll discuss the film.
