Nonprofits can use their credibility as proven champions for the community (not one political side or the other) to bring unnatural allies together. Nonprofits do this all the time. For instance, a community organization seeking support for a bike lane learns to navigate opposition from those in the community who don’t want the bike lane. There may be legitimate safety concerns about how narrow the road will become with the addition of a bike lane. Listening to the other’s side’s concerns creates better solutions. Your nonprofit may have led many similar conversations.
