Bridging Divides Initiative

Project Leader


The Bridging Divides Initiative (BDI) is a non-partisan research initiative that tracks and mitigates political violence in the United States.  BDI supports efforts to grow and build local community resilience through elections and other periods of heightened risk, laying the groundwork for longer-term efforts towards reconciliation and addressing societal polarization. More information on BDI can be found on their website.
