Action examples include participating in a 1:1 depolarizing conversation with someone, hosting a living room conversation, putting on an offering from your own organization that fits with depolarization, writing a letter to the editor about what you are learning about depolarization, exploring offerings from Braver Angels with some friend and attending something together, joining an already existing Braver Angels alliance, or starting a local discussion group to talk about topics of interest in a respectful way.
- Attend one of the multiple Braver Angels events. Invite a friend to come with you.
- Participate in a Braver Angels 1:1 conversation with someone. Then go do SOMETHING with that person (for ex., co-write an op-ed; volunteer together to pick up trash, work at a food bank, etc.).
- Host a Living Room Conversation, following the guidelines of the Living Room Conversations group, using the link included here.
- Host a Dinner and a Fight discussion, using guidelines provided at the link included here.
- Put on an offering from your own organization that fits the mission of civic renewal.
- Write a letter to your local paper about Braver Angels, your experience at the convention, or with Braver Angels, and the importance of civic renewal and depolarization.
- Talk to three friends about Braver Angels, why you’re interested in the organization and/or your experience at the convention, with a goal to have them explore the Braver Angels website and attend something with you or become a member.
- If you don’t have a Braver Angels Alliance in your area, contact your Braver Angels state coordinator or regional lead for a list of people in your area that have expressed an interest in depolarizing. Invite those people to get together (in person, if possible, but over Zoom works too!). At the meeting, discuss what the group’s next steps should be. Work with your state coordinator for ideas.
- If you are part of a faith community or group, you may wish to host a Faith-Sponsored Workshop (FSW).
