“What If…” Film Series presents: Better Angels: Reuniting America

March 11, 2020 - 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

EVENT UPDATE: The event at ArtRage is still taking place. If you would prefer to attend by webinar, Better Angels CNY is also hosting a “Zoom” meeting. Please join at https://zoom.us/j/519937480 Meeting ID: 519 937

The film documents a Better Angels Red/Blue workshop in Waynesville, Ohio.

The Gifford Foundation “What If…” Film Series at ArtRage Gallery in partnership with the Better Angels CNY & Southern Hills Interest Group will screen Better Angels: Reuniting America.

This documentary film by Emmy-winning director Jim Brown and produced by Peter Yarrow of the legendary Peter, Paul, and Mary trio, 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.

Following the film there will be a discussion with local Better Angels volunteers.

This event is free but advanced registration is encouraged. Please register HERE.

About Better Angels
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.
