Vote on the political issue Braver Angels should take on


Shortly after the 2020 election, with millions of Americans questioning its integrity, a group of red and blue Braver Angels leaders asked perhaps the most important question we face: Can we rebuild trust across the political spectrum in the integrity of our elections?

In a time of acrimony, these leaders created hope. They organized Common Ground Workshops in 26 communities across the country, bringing together progressives and conservatives in equal numbers.

It worked. Their report, “We Trust US,” offers policymakers 23 actionable solutions to rebuild all Americans’ trust in our elections.

They didn’t do it by one side out-arguing or out-voting the other. Or by calling each other names. They did it by working together—doing the hard work of patriotic citizenship.  

Now we’ll do it again, and we need your help.

Which issues today are tearing us apart? Where can working in the “Braver Angels Way” do the most good for our nation in this challenging moment?

You decide. We’ve nominated 12 possible issues. You’ll recognize every one.

We want you, our members, to choose four finalists—vote here—to go to our 2024 National Convention in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on July 27-29. The delegates in Kenosha—apply to become one here—will discuss and debate these four, narrow it down to two, and then pick one for a priority focus in the coming months.

Why? In a time of partisan gridlock, we are saying: “It doesn’t have to be this way.” In a time when so many of our political leaders don’t seem up to the task, we are saying: “Watch us.”

I am asking you to help us achieve this goal for our country. Vote right now on the issues you view as most important. And if you possibly can, come to Kenosha. Join us there. Create hope.

Kelly Corrigan Wonders: Daring to disagree on abortion

In this special guest episode, we’re going to pass the mic to a wonderful podcast, “Kelly Corrigan Wonders,” that recently invited our very own April Lawson to disagree openly and honestly with host Kelly Corrigan about one of the toughest issues out there — abortion.

Their conversation is in-depth, illuminating, and believe it or not — productive. Plus, it puts many of the tools we talk about on “A Braver Way” on full display.

We’re back next week with a new Beat episode, and our first full-length episode of our new season will be up next!
