CHARLOTTE, N.C. — On October 20, people from both sides of the aisle held a workshop in Myers Park to discuss ways to bring the country together in a time when political division is strong, starting with helping their local community.
There were seven republicans, seven democrats, a couple moderators and observers in the room, identifying there political stances with colored beads. Today’s workshop was hosted by a national organization called Better Angels — local leaders and community members put on the event in Charlotte for the first time.
Better Angels is a bipartisan citizen’s movement with hopes to unify the nation. Launched in 2016, the organization’s goal is to build new ways to talk to one another, participate and influence those around you.
