Founded in 2007 by former Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker, Tom Daschle, Bob Dole and George Mitchell, the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) is a non-profit organization that drives principled solutions through rigorous analysis, reasoned negotiation and respectful dialogue. With projects in multiple issue areas, BPC combines politically-balanced policymaking with strong, proactive advocacy and outreach. As the only Washington, DC-based think tank that actively promotes bipartisanship, BPC works to address the key challenges facing the nation. Our policy solutions are the product of informed deliberations by former elected and appointed officials, business and labor leaders, and academics and advocates who represent both ends of the political spectrum. We are currently focused on health, energy, national and homeland security, the economy, housing, immigration, and governance. BPC is committed to seeing our policy solutions enacted by lawmakers. Through the Bipartisan Policy Center Advocacy Network (BPCAN), our (c)(4) affiliate, we engage in advocacy and strategic outreach and education to bolster the legislative center and support efforts that bring Republicans and Democrats together on the difficult issues facing the country. While a healthy, civil debate among those with differing viewpoints is an essential component of our democracy, the current partisan tone in government is impeding progress. Through the Democracy Project and events like Bridge-Builder Breakfasts, political summits and timely policy discussions, BPC is fostering an ongoing conversation about how to overcome political divides and help make our government work better.

Our team is passionate, collaborative, courageous, adaptable and fun. We love setting big goals and learning lessons on the way to achieving them. We celebrate our differences and work to ensure that our staff, donors, volunteers, and supporters reflect the tremendous diversity of the American people as we strive together on the most American of national projects: amending the US Constitution. The For Our Freedom Amendment authorizes limits and regulation of money used to influence local, state and/or federal elections. American Promise unites Americans in advocacy for the Amendment to combat systemic corruption and protect our voice, votes, communities and future. We empower people in all 50 states to connect, learn, act and lead efforts to mobilize their districts, states and networks to ensure we pass this amendment. By working together—across party lines and city limits—we can make our belief a reality. We also lead and partner in specific state campaigns to advance our constitutional amendment: 22 states have taken formal action to support the amendment, with six winning state ballot initiatives among them. We launched American Promise in January 2016 to execute a 10-year strategy to pass and ratify this constitutional amendment. If you’re excited to contribute your passion, skills, and experience to our urgent and historic effort, then please apply!

The National Conference of State Legislatures is a bipartisan non-governmental organization established to serve the members and staff of state legislatures of the United States. The National Conference of State Legislatures has three major objectives: improving the quality and effectiveness of state legislatures; promoting policy innovation and communication among state legislatures; and ensuring state legislatures a strong cohesive voice in the federal system. NCSL maintains two offices: one in Denver and the other in Washington, D.C. The organization has eight standing committees composed of legislators and legislative staff, appointed by the leadership of the legislatures. Each Committee provides a means by which state legislators can share experience, information, and advice on a variety of state issues ranging from policy to management. The committees meet together biannually at NCSL’s Fall Forum and NCSL's Legislative Summit to adopt state-federal legislative policies. These committee meetings also serve as an opportunity for states to network and establish flows of information as well as experience-based suggestions from other states. In addition to the Fall Forum and the Summit, NCSL builds the state legislative community by hosting various web seminars, leadership meetings, and access to relevant websites and online documents throughout the year. The organization is led by a legislator, who serves as its President and by a legislative staffer, who serves as Staff Chair. The National Conference of State Legislatures was established in 1975 and is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, United States.
