Kali mentioned Braver Angels in business meeting. "Launched in 2016, Braver Angels 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."

They are having a special meeting Tues, Jan. 12, 7–8:30 CST, "to reflect on what is happening in the country and how we can act to hold America together." Ann writes that she and Khyber are thinking about attending and would like to hear from anyone else in Meeting who wants to attend.

"At this time of crisis, we need more than civility, empathy, and goodwill. We need courage."
