Braver Angels Online Experiences
Come Together...Wherever You Are
Braver Angels workshops have brought thousands of people together over the past few years, strengthening relationships and whole communities. We want to make these experiences accessible to every American who wants to take part, so we’re making them available online, using the great videoconferencing tools now available.
Conversations about our beliefs can be difficult, especially when our relationships are at stake.
Braver Angels Online Training Workshops help you navigate these discussions with empathy and openness, and avoid demonization and contempt. Practice your skills with others using Zoom breakout rooms.
