Braver Angels Helps Bridge Red-Blue Divide Focusing on Understanding vs. Convincing—And It Works

If you’ve ever had a frustrating, go-nowhere political conversation with someone on the other side of the red-blue divide, Braver Angels can help, as we learn from director of events, Randy Lioz.

Back in 2016, after an incredibly divisive election, the founders of Braver Angels saw that America needed help. As they say on their website:

“Americans no longer see their political opponents as simply wrong or misguided. they see them as enemies who must be defeated at all costs. we do not accept this…we reject the normalizing of this extreme polarization.”

Since then, they’ve developed over 40 workshop formats to help individuals, companies, campuses, and even politicians depolarize conversations, rebuild civic trust, and maybe even get things done.
