Here’s the conversation you’ve been hoping for: a rational look at healing America’s political divide.
Braver Angels is a bipartisan citizen’s movement dedicated to reducing political polarization and reuniting our divided country. Come to this online screening of the Braver Angels documentary, Reuniting America. If you want to get a jump on the content, see the documentary at https://vimeo.com/326913665 and use the password “angels” or visit braverangels.org.
The film documents a Braver Angels Workshop held shortly after the 2016 election, when 8 Trump voters and 8 Clinton voters met to exchange views. See for yourself how the Braver Angels methods can reduce polarization and increase respect even among people with radically different political ideas. The participants started the workshop polarized and opposed to each other. By the end, they were able to find common ground and see each other’s common humanity.
On November 29, we will view the documentary and discuss your reactions to the film. A leader of the local chapter of Braver Angels, Ed Jaszewski, will talk about Braver Angels and answer questions. This promises to be an inspiring and uplifting experience.
