Braver Politics


American politics is broken.

From city councils and school boards to state legislatures and the U.S. Congress, elected officials no longer trust one another – and our political institutions are mired in gridlock, dysfunction, and rancor.

Now is the time for Braver Angels to enter into the political arena and harness the incredible strength of our grassroots citizens movement with 10,000 active, dues-paying members and 80 local Alliances across the country, to depolarize our politics and remake our political culture from the ground up in a spirit of trust, citizenship, and good-will.

By fostering opportunities for elected officials and their staffs to participate in Braver Angels programs, develop skills for communicating across difference, and build constructive relationships across the partisan divide, the Braver Politics initiative will influence our politics at the local, state, and federal level going into the 2022 elections and beyond.

We’ve already begun to pilot our initiative with elected officials at all levels of government through workshops, skills trainings, and 1:1 conversations. Now we are asking our members to prepare us for our nationwide launch by signing up to get involved and building our membership. 

Welcome to Braver Politics.
