Join the Champaign County League on Thursday, April 29, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm on Zoom for a presenation by Chuck Stone, Braver Angels representative for Illinois
One thing most Americans can agree on is that political differences are a significant problem in our country today, affecting relationships at all levels. Many people are disinclined to take part in discussions with those they disagree with politically. Yet, many Americans believe we must shift and overcome our political divisions if America is to survive as a democracy.
Braver Angels is an organization that has received considerable attention since the 2016 elections. At a time when it is rare to bring Red and Blue together that is exactly what Braver Angels does, saying “Come with your convictions, your willingness to listen, and your readiness to talk with others who disagree with you.”
The League is truly fortunate to have two leaders in the Illinois Braver Angels as guest presenters at this program to talk to us about how they do this, its successes and challenges - Chuck Stone, J.D., faculty member at DePaul and Illinois coordinator for Braver Angels, and Madeline McCarren, Ph.D., volunteer for Braver Angels.
Come and hear what they have to say – and they are very interested in hearing what you have to say as well. You will leave with much to think about.
See the Braver Angels website for more about the organization.
