We the People’s Forum

08/08/2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

Host Organization: Braver Angels - We the People's Forum
State/Region: - National

After the reversal of Roe v. Wade, can “We the People” find common ground on abortion?

And might the experiences of everyday Americans — pro-life, pro-choice, somewhere in between — help us to move forward on this challenging issue?

We’ll explore these questions and possible solutions with a fascinating lineup of first speakers and with participants.

Our first speakers include a woman who switched from pro-choice to pro-life after having an abortion, a nurse who switched from pro-life to pro-choice after an unplanned pregnancy and her work as a maternal health nurse, and an African American community leader who is conflicted on the issue.

Then, it’s the people’s turn to speak.

We the People’s Forum is a Braver Angels event where everyday Americans get time at the podium.

Here’s how it works:

  • First part: our first speakers talk about their experiences and perspectives, their concerns about their own positions, and what they see in common.
  • Second part: it’s We the People time! Anyone with direct experience on the issue is encouraged to talk about their experience, and anyone may ask a question.
  • Third part: we together explore areas of common ground.

This event is open to the general public.

Our first speakers:

Janelle Burke is a former nurse and school board candidate; the founder and editor of WakeUpSnoCo; and co-founder of a community outreach organization dedicated to healing in the Black community and for U.S. veterans.

Liberty Crouch-Taylor is a public speaker, ordained minister, digital fine artist, and author of Demons Release Trilogies, a book series that chronicles Liberty’s journey from drug addiction and homelessness to healing and finding faith in Jesus Christ.

Maureen May is a registered nurse and the president of PASNAP, a Pennsylvania nurses union.
