All events will be moderated by John Rash, an editorial writer for the Star Tribune.
Featuring William R. Fry Jr. and Rob Weidenfeld, members of Braver Angels
Thu, Sep 24, 3:30 pm
FREE and open to the public
Braver Angels is a citizens’ organization uniting Americans from different political parties in a working alliance to depolarize America. The mission of both red and blue members alike is to try to understand the other side’s point of view, even if they don’t agree with it; engage those they disagree with; look for common ground and ways to work together; and support principles that bring communities together rather than divide them. William Fry, Jr. and Rob Weidenfeld, a Braver Angels’ “Red/Blue Pair” from Ohio, will model these practices to launch the Spotlight Series 2020-21.
