Civility and Bipartisanship
Bipartisan Retreats for Members and Their Families
Time together away from the Hill is the best opportunity Members of Congress have to build healthy working relationships across party lines, but there's little time to do so. Almost from the instant a new Member steps foot on the Hill, their time and training is controlled on a partisan basis. A retreat at the start of each Congress for new Members and their families could help change this dynamic right from the start.
