BridgeUSA at Capital University

BridgeUSA is a multipartisan student movement that champions viewpoint diversity, responsible discourse, and a solution-oriented political culture. We are developing a generation of leaders that value empathy and constructive engagement because our generation will bear the cost of polarization and tribalism for years to come.

We believe that polarization is damaging our country and causing young people to either disengage from democracy or radically engage by fitting a partisan mold. Democracy is in danger if the next generation is disengaged and polarized because young people are the future of our country.

The purpose of BridgeUSA is to build a Bridge community — one in which students from across the ideological spectrum can engage as a group working together to understand — to bridge — the various perspectives behind the important political and social issues of our time.

We rise above party. We do not force unity or compromise. We believe in the Bridge Mindset- viewpoint diversity, constructive engagement, and a solution-oriented political culture

The members of EBA work to fulfill its mission through different programming each year. Our programs emphasize the overall well-being of our members and community- at large through community outreach, mental health awareness, and ally-ship with various campus community members.

Modeling friendship: Both co-moderators put their friendship on display through being the first to talk about the topic voted on the time before.

Pursuing truth together: Although admirable, it is not enough to just have a group of friends who think differently. Real friendships help one another find out what is true, and they pursue that truth together. Call us crazy, but we think you can do that even if you think differently than one another.
