A nonpartisan project to advance the understanding of American innovation and public policy

Curated by Chris McCoy, Co-Creator at $STORE

As Seen On


America hasn’t been divided since the Civil War. To solve, it’s time to embrace purple.

America isn’t red or blue. It’s purple. And a near equal blend of both. Using a purple nonpartisan lens, Data4America is curating and creating data-driven content to help advance the understanding of the most divisive issues facing our country.

We publish “Unplugged”, a podcast with leaders at the intersection of industry and Washington D.C.

Unplugged is hosted by a series of leaders across technology and public policy. Guests share their views on America’s current direction as it relates to the key divisive issues, and on innovation.

We have more in common than realized yet we’re fiercely divided between red vs. blue. It’s time to embrace our purple.

Purple is the color we get when red and blue are mixed together. Once embraced, we can advance together.
