"We’ve got to figure out a way out of this mess, and that’s what Braver Angels offers. We all need tools in our toolbox for good conversations. That’s why I’m here. It’s time for something different."

– Erica M. (Blue), California

"As a conservative voter, I came to Braver Angels broken-hearted and deeply disillusioned by the hurtful division I was personally experiencing. I have found in Braver Angels a safe 'political home' for authentic, civil and curious discussions."

– Rita C. (Red), Arkansas

"As a defense professional, I believe our political division is our greatest threat. Our enemies use it against us, and it keeps us from solving the challenges our nation faces today. Braver Angels restores trust amongst our citizens and protects our security."

– Tedman G. (Red), Overseas

"I'm addicted to the nuance, the layered perspectives, the fresh ways into otherwise draining issues. And how even within my politically divided family, we're finding more and more to learn."

– Mónica G. (Blue), Washington

"Braver Angels allows me to speak my mind without fear that my perspective will be mischaracterized or demonized."

– Travis T. (Red), New Hampshire

Highlights

Our 2024 National Convention will take place at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin on June 27-29. Located halfway between Milwaukee and Chicago – the respective locations for next year’s Republican and Democratic National Conventions – our Convention will be a launching pad for better, more hopeful politics.

This will be an event like no other in American politics – we hope you can be there.

Conservatives and liberals agree on how to restore trust in our elections, according to our newly released report.

A Braver Way wrapped its first season in January and will be releasing season two this summer.

In the meantime, check out the season one episodes where host Mónica Guzmán discusses everything from how to navigate families divided by politics to a path forward for those who disagreed about COVID-19 policies.

The work of Braver Angels starts with bringing Reds and Blues together to take action and build community at the grassroots level.

Meet people in your area from across the political spectrum who are committed to listening to and working alongside those with whom they disagree. Alliances host community debates, group discussions, social events, and more.

Through Deliberative Town Halls, Common Ground Workshops, and the work of Braver Politics, alliances can engage local citizens and elected officials to make a difference in their community.

Fighting Over Politics is Tearing Us Apart
The % of Americans who “Always/Often” feel _____ when thinking about politics these days.

When all voices are heard, civic renewal grows.

Citizenship is the common thread that connects all Americans. We are a nation bound not by race or religion, but by the shared values of freedom, liberty, and equality. When Reds, Blues and Others work together, the entire country benefits. Our movement is the guiding force that's helping Americans work together again.

Red-Blue Balance at Work on Our Website

At Braver Angels, we require Red-Blue balance at all levels of leadership. In the summer of 2023 we formed a website committee tasked with redesigning our website; 4 Reds, 4 Blues and 2 Others. Over the next year, you'll see some changes as we roll out new webpages based on expertise from our team and feedback from our members.

The balance of Red, Blue and Other on our website team has been paramount to the success of this project. Through full, free and fearless discussions we revealed important insights, leading to a stronger end result.
