Purple is hosted under the non-profit, nonpartisan auspices of the National Conference on Citizenship in Washington, DC. The project has been incubated at the Brookings Institution to address the polarization of the right-left divide, the fragmentation of media, the filter bubbles of social-media echo chambers, decades of decline in civic literacy and growing disaffection from our democratic institutions.

The challenge: how to renew faith and promote participation in our democracy. The preliminary result: a multi-tiered organization of volunteers and professionals, partner institutions and energetic individuals whose cumulative reach has won allies in every corner of the society.
