Let’s get you up to speed.

Welcome to Braver Angels and welcome to the movement. We are a community of people from across the political spectrum fighting to hold this country together. We work in institutions, organize in communities, debate the issues, and speak truth to power. But our battle begins with challenging ourselves to have the patriotism to empathize with one another – and providing the tools for the American people to do exactly that.

No matter what you believe, how much you know, or the time you can give, you can join our movement to combat political polarization. While there are many ways to engage, here are a few options to get you started.

2. Build a New
Set of Skills

Take an eCourse, 40 min
These professional-level courses have been crafted by experts in communications and depolarization. They provide an effective and “safe” way to interact with people in difficult situations. These courses can be taken stand-alone, before a workshop, or after a workshop.

Attend a Debate, 2 hrs
Our special parliamentary format encourages everyone to speak or ask questions, ensures civility in disagreement, and strives for learning and better understanding for all. The online version works in much the same way, modified to foster constructive debate coast to coast.

Whether you’re interested in learning about the skills needed to have difficult conversations across the divide, or you want to actually speak to and connect with those with whom you disagree, join us for a workshop.
