Blended Bridge aims to connect the community of individuals who oftentimes feel like their identities have gotten lost in the middle. Most importantly, our goal is to create a safe, inclusive community that welcomes every individual for who they are and what they identify as. Whatever that may be.
The role of a bridge is to serve as a connecting or intermediate route or phase between two adjacent elements, activities, or conditions. Likewise, Blended Bridge serves as an intermediary between our differences in an attempt to allow us to better understand one another. By highlighting the ways in which we are all wildly different, yet inadvertently the same, Blended Bridge attempts to Bridge Our Differences.
“You think your pain and heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was Dostoevsky and Dickens who taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or whoever had been alive. Only if we face these open wounds in ourselves can we understand them in other people.”
– James Baldwin
