This week brings us to the final element of the Purple Living Room Project...
The Purple Living Room Project models at a local level what productive conversations could look like in our representative assemblies.
Following our Congress in action is like watching a tug-of-war.
Whoever is in power pulls as hard as they can.
Sometimes they pull the other side across the line far
enough to get something accomplished.
Then it's time for another election and the other side pulls as hard as they can.
Everyone tugs and tugs and tugs toward their own position.
Nothing moves forward and we all are losers.
Contacting congress with your Purple Points is a small way to take action.
Tell your State and National representatives where you found points of agreement. Sharing your Purple Points with Congress lets those in power know that We the People value conversation and compromise.
Be sure to send the letter or e-mail from your entire discussion group...
Let's raise our voices together in a purple chorus for change!

"Meet in the Middle" is a Purple Living Room campaign encouraging people from across the political spectrum to meet together each week in order to find common ground. Each middle of the week (WEDNESDAY!) we'll post an update on Purple Living Room Project activities. Share YOUR progress on our Facebook group page or in the comments here. Our goal?
