    Braver Angels (formerly Better Angels) is hosting a documentary screening of Braver Angels: Reuniting America Braver Angels (BA) is "a national citizens’ movement to bring liberals and conservatives together at the grassroots level — not to find centrist compromise, but to find one another as citizens. Through workshops, debates, and campus engagement, Braver Angels helps Americans understand each other beyond stereotypes, form community alliances, and reduce the vitriol that poisons our civic culture."

    Thursday, May 28, 2020 - 7:00 - 8:45 PM 

    This documentary (50 minutes in length) follows a group of "reds" and "blues" who gathered for an intensive, facilitated weekend workshop to find common ground despite distrust, skepticism, and tension over their differing political views.   After the free screening, members of our group will facilitate a discussion about the documentary and ways we might expand the conversation(s) here in Maine and New Hampshire.  

    To see a 4-minute trailer of the documentary, please click here.  


    If Braver Angels interests you, you may also be interested in a Maine-based effort called Makeshift Coffeehouse
