Common Ground Committee
Common Ground Committee (CGC) is a non-partisan, citizen-led organization that inspires action on polarizing issues by bringing prominent leaders with opposing views together in public forums to find common ground. Since its founding in 2009, the organization has hosted dozens of notable panelists including John Kerry, Condoleezza Rice, Michael Steele and Donna Brazile to find points of consensus on issues ranging from race and income inequality to America’s role in the world. Free of political agenda and financial influence, Common Ground Committee has a singular focus on bringing light, not heat, to public discourse. Get involved with Common Ground Committee.
