Resources & Next Steps from our Red-Blue Dialogue Confab

We had another great NCDD “Confab Call” last week and as always, if you couldn’t join us we welcome you to listen to the audio recording. Our latest Confab featured NCDD members Jacob Hess and Phil Neisser, co-authers of “You’re Not as Crazy as I Thought, But You’re Still Wrong,” leading a discussion on red-blue dialogue.

We had over 100 participants, 75 of which dropped in on the call’s collaborative doc, which this time was hosted on Hackpad.com and focused on several thoughtful questions and next steps. One next step we’ll be following up on from this call is to create and host a listserv for those in our field working on red/blue or transpartisan dialogue. We think this will help folks working in this arena stay informed about each other’s efforts and collaborate when possible. Add a comment below if you’d like to be added to this new listserv!
