A Political Space for the Rest of Us
ABOUT MAJORITY IN THE MIDDLE
As our political environment gets more and more toxic, as the extremes get further and further apart, as thoughtful people opt out of politics and policy creation, the worse the problem gets. And that is not ok.
We need those who believe in civil discourse, in bipartisanship and compromise, and in setting a better example for the next generation of elected officials to step forward -- not opt out.
We need a roadmap to restore civility and ethics and trust in our governmental bodies. We need leadership at every level -- from our elected officials to our neighborhoods.
We need to quit labeling and segregating ourselves. We need to quit sliding down the slippery slope before we get so far down we can’t get back up.
To be clear, this isn't about one person or one election. The problem is with OUR political culture (yes, all of us) which is slow to change and needs a lot of patience and participation.
Want to be part of the solution? There's a seat at the table for you.
The easy problems have been solved. Its time to work on the hard stuff.
The last thing we want to do is to replicate another organization's success - if an initiative or a program is working elsewhere, we'll point and share. Majority in the Middle intends to amplify what is already working, but also examine NEW ideas and solutions to problems.
Where can we partner? What are the issues we should tackle first, and which are issues that can wait? These are the right questions, and right now we're asking a LOT of questions, by hosting group conversations. Want to be included? Fill out the form on the Get Involved page.
We believe that there is no singular answer, project, initiative, organization — there are many meaningful ways each of us can be a part and every little bit helps when it comes to making our political experience a little better.

Know of an elected official doing it right?
