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.","numberOfEmployees":208,"address":[{"address":{"@type":"PostalAddress","addressLocality":"Washington, DC, USA"}},{"address":{"@type":"PostalAddress","addressLocality":"Washington, DC, USA"}}],"sameAs":"https://bipartisanpolicy.org","url":"https://bipartisanpolicy.org","logo":"https://cdn.getro.com/companies/742ec33c-7337-5d51-880a-88a5c7f4a954","memberOf":{"@type":"Organization","name":"Democracy Jobs","description":"","logo":"https://cdn.filepicker.io/api/file/8NtkRH4tRFeyE1OphqMw","url":"www.democracyjobs.org"},"keywords":"Community and Lifestyle, Government and Military"}}
