Video: EVERYDAY HEROES - John Wood Jr.

John R. Wood, Jr.'s biracial background and bipartisan parents laid the framework for his extensive career working across differences and divides.

John is one of the preeminent voices in the bridge building movement today. He is the national leader and ambassador for Braver Angels, a national citizens' movement to bring liberals, conservatives and others together at the grassroots level — not to find centrist compromise, but to find one another as citizens. As host of both The John Wood, Jr. Show and The Braver Angels Podcast, John sees media as a powerful tool to bridge our political and racial divides.

As a companion series to The Reunited States, an acclaimed feature documentary, Everyday Heroes profiles civic pioneers across the USA who are creating novel solutions to polarization.
