There are many interesting channels to explore at the Maven and as The Transpartisan Voice grows we will be reaching out to many to build content sharing partnerships with many. One channel in particular, Brigitte Perreault's Global Lead, has been instrumental in our conception. We encourage you to visit and explore her channel.
The Global Lead
The Global Lead Channel promotes education, advocacy and activism to encourage and create positive social and environmental changes by focusing on the following global issues: climate & energy, environment, ocean conservancy, wild life protection, human rights, gender equality, human trafficking, social entrepreneurship, youth leadership, women, girls, & boys empowerment, and global initiatives. Their mission is to provide their global audience with the necessary knowledge and tools to actively engage and to realize the importance of their support, their signature, and their voice.
The transpartisan community is part of a larger engagement community working hard to bring citizens together to dig deeper into issues and solve problems within their communities. Several members of these communities have supported the conceptualization and planning of this project, and it's through their inspiration, wisdom, and engagement that we have been able to put this channel together.
Bridge Alliance is a growing movement of more than 70 civic action organizations working individually and together to transform the political terrain. They put country before self-interest and ask friends, neighbors, colleagues, competitors and elected officials with varying political beliefs and backgrounds to do the same; and they provide essential infrastructure and investment for thier member organizations to connect and collaborate on projects that further shared goals to generate a collective impact far greater than any one group could make alone.

Citizens for Health
Citizens for Health (or CFH), The Consumer Voice of the Natural Health Community, is one of the nation’s most respected, and powerful, consumer action groups dedicated to providing a voice and a platform for informed and effective health activism. Founded in 1992, CFH is a non-profit organization that provides over 100,000 supporters with credible and well-researched consumer news, action alerts, and opportunities to protect and expand access to innovative dietary supplements, healthy food, non-toxic products and integrative healthcare.

Living Room Conversations
Living Room Conversations are a conversational bridge across issues that divide and separate us. They provide an easy structure for engaging in friendly yet meaningful conversation with those with whom we may not agree. These conversations increase understanding, reveal common ground, and sometimes even allow us to discuss possible solutions. No fancy event or skilled facilitator is needed.

The mission of Mediators Foundation is to foster global leadership for a peaceful, just and sustainable world by identifying, supporting and connecting visionary leaders working to build bridges across the great social, political and cultural divides of our time. Since our founding in 1985, we have catalyzed civic and educational projects to address social issues of national and global importance, and promoted bridge-building initiatives that have advanced our core values of peace, justice and sustainability.

National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation
The National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation is a network of thousands of innovators who bring people together across divides to tackle today’s toughest challenges. NCDD serves as a gathering place, a resource clearinghouse, a news source, and a facilitative leader for this extraordinary community. Link: www.ncdd.org
Voice for HOPE
The vision for Voice for HOPE (Healers of Planet Earth), became focused in the spring of 2010 when a group of energy healers and policy activists came together around the belief that the time has come for healers everywhere to speak up, transcend the political dialogue, and transform the policies that limit individual and social well-being and health.
