Better Angels is a national citizens’ movement to reduce political polarization in the United States by bringing liberals and conservatives together to understand each other beyond stereotypes, forming red/blue community alliances, teaching practical skills for communicating across political differences, and making a strong public argument for depolarization.
Better Angels unites red and blue Americans in a working alliance to Depolarize America. Instead of asking people to change their minds about key issues, they try to give all Americans a chance to better understand each other, to absorb the values and experiences that inform our political philosophies, and to ultimately recognize our common humanity.
The Better Angels Documentary
Better Angels: Reuniting America is a 50-minute documentary about what happened before, during and after a Better Angels Red/Blue workshop in Waynesville, Ohio. It was directed by four-time Emmy award-winner Jim Brown, and produced by musician Peter Yarrow.
Better Angels: Reuniting America shows 8 Democratic-leaning voters and 7 Republican-leaning voters moving through a Better Angels signature Red/Blue workshop, from initial skepticism to more profound understanding and empathy. You’ll get an inside look at how a Democratic voter went from threatening to cut off relationships with Trump voters to becoming dear friends with one—and how a Republican voter moved from disdaining progressives to taking co-leadership with one in a movement that now spans the country. It’s a great way to introduce people to Better Angels and our shared mission of depolarization.
