Video Library

These videos constitute an integral part of Building a Transpartisan Movement. Specifically, this online video library is a vital element in Strategy Three: Creating a Teaching/Learning Community, and Strategy Five: Constructing and Sharing the Movement’s Story.

Our Ted-X style video clips give viewers insight and inspiration by leaders in our field, as part of our “video-based movement building strategy.”

These videos were filmed in April 2014 in Boulder, Colorado at the Transpartisan Leadership 1.1 event. This one-day workshop, co-hosted by University of Colorado and Naropa University, was designed for both students and the general public to explore ways to work across the polarized lines that currently divide the American public.

The faculty shared what they have learned from the many successful initiatives they have led or are currently implementing to bridge partisan divides. The participants also learned specific, practical skills from the Transpartisan Toolbox that are useful for advancing a specific policy issue or solving a civic problem in ways that require significant collaboration from citizens with diverse political perspectives.
