Common Grounds: Both Sides of the Same Issue

Now more than ever, our nation needs elected leaders with the courage to reach across the aisle, pursue common ground, and forge real solutions to the challenges facing businesses, workers, families, and communities across America.

Building on our Bipartisanship and Leadership Awards program, the Common Grounds virtual event series convenes one Republican leader and one Democratic leader to explore important issues or challenges facing the business community and the nation.

Over a cup of Compass Coffee, we discuss opportunities for consensus, legitimate policy differences, and pathways to compromise and meaningful solutions.

We hope that you’ll join us as we sit down with leaders who have the courage to work across the aisle and get things done in Washington.
