How can extending affordable, ubiquitous broadband access to Northwestern communities help your grantees and partners better achieve their goals? What are the particular connectivity needs of rural, geographically remote, and tribal communities? What are the barriers to better Internet access for different communities? Please join Philanthropy Northwest as we host Next Century Cities for a briefing about strategies for engaging community leaders and city government in the national broadband conversation. 


Bipartisan Policy Center Briefing: Improving our Nation's Political Discourse

June 10, 2015,
10:00am to 12:00pm

Many believe that the current partisan tone in government is impeding progress on critical issues such as immigration, health, housing, financial reform, national security, energy and the economy. Philanthropy Northwest is pleased to welcome Senator Olympia Snowe and Jason Grumet, president of the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington, DC, for a discussion on the causes and consequences of America's political divide and reforms that could help improve the overall process of political discourse, public policy and civic engagement.
