Citizen Advocacy Center, PURPLE Screening & Discussion

PURPLE tells the story of Americans with opposing viewpoints investigating their differences and discovering the concerns and experiences that lie behind each other’s positions.  Filmed in rural Wisconsin and Iowa—in a swing region within two bordering swing states—PURPLE models a rare, mediated conversation that uplifts and inspires even while going toward the heat of passionate political differences. The screening and post-screening discussion offers a structured opportunity to capture the thinking of the core characters on their own terms, as well as to explore the value of doing so for our democracy.
