Braver Angels Debates

A collaborative search for the truth

Many minds are better than one. Our commitment to intellectual humility is based on the idea that we still have so much to learn from one another. 

Braver Angels Online Debates gather people from around the country to bring their unique perspectives to bear, in an in-depth discussion centered around a contentious topic. Unlike other debate formats, though, we value expressions of nuance and uncertainty, and many participants change their positions after—and during—our debates.

Online Workshops

Learn about your political opposites, and how to have great conversations

The heart of Braver Angels is our focus on building relationships and trust. Whether its within your family or friends, in your community, or across the country, familiarity fosters affection. 

Braver Angels workshops guide people through conversations with those they deeply disagree with to find out how they came to their perspectives, and what they actually agree on. Expand your social circle with a Red-Blue Workshop, or get help talking to those already in your life, with Skills for Bridging the Divide, Depolarizing Within and Families & Politics. 

Online workshops are starting to roll out. Find out more about the unique aspects of these events, and ways to get involved.

Special Events

Gathering together a wide range of perspectives for stirring conversations about issues that impact us all

It’s a core part of the Braver Angels mission to help move the national conversation forward. We lead by example, featuring guests who advocate strongly for their perspectives without demonizing those who disagree.

Our special events include monthly Member Meetings with exciting featured guests, and American Speaker’s Forum, a new series of weekly events in partnership with the National Institute for Civil Discourse, featuring presentations from leading authorities on various issues, followed by open discussion and debate.
