Crossing Party Lines

Crossing Party Lines (CPL) began in 2016, founded as two identically named organizations. Crossing Party Lines’ mission statement is to “create open dialogue between Americans with dissimilar ideologies to increase tolerance, build communities and encourage civic engagement” with an overarching vision of creating “a country that cultivates the power in diversity of thought for public betterment.” The organization pushes for finding common ground, or “shared values,” as Americans rather than further isolating and separating topics that have many overlapping elements.
