Bridge Magazine’s philosophy was best set out nearly 200 years before its creation. In his “Democracy in America,” Alexis de Tocqueville wrote,“The health of a democratic society may be measured by the quality of functions performed by private citizens.”
The Center for Michigan was created to help Michigan citizens develop an agenda to move our state forward.
Bridge’s mission is to inform Michigan citizens about their state, amplify their views and explore the challenges of our civic life. Our goal at Bridge is simple: To better inform Michigan’s private citizens so as to encourage a vibrant state in both the private and public sectors.
