In all our debates we use resolutions that might be controversial to encourage speeches from both sides. Unlike some of our workshops, these are not associated with Red and Blue, but Pro and Con. Online Debates take place via Zoom conference call, moderated by a Trained Debate Chair. You must register in advance. Participants who are Braver Angels members will be given preference if too many people sign up. Please note that Braver Angels may use footage from online debates in videos and/or marketing materials.
