Braver Citizens

Building a stronger country starts at the grassroots.
When it comes to addressing political polarization, everyone has a role to play. 
We organize thousands of citizens at the grassroots level across all 50 states through membership recruitment, local alliance-building, regional leadership development, convention delegation, and community events, including workshops, debates, and town halls.
