PurpleState Launch - eTown

PurpleState, a project from the makers of the long-running radio program eTown, invites you to join us in rejecting the dysfunctional present state of affairs as inevitable. Through a podcast series set to launch in the fall of 2018 - just in time for mid-term general elections! - grassroots engagement, and live events, PurpleState will reinvigorate the American tradition of civil discourse rooted in diverse perspectives, on a path toward finding common ground on some of the most important issues facing our nation and the world.

PurpleState aims to create a more enlightened, empowered, and mutually-respectful American electorate that places the Welfare of the People back at the center of our collective agenda.
