Documentary Screening: 'Reuniting America'
It all began in southwest Ohio, where Trump voters and Clinton voters gathered in our Red/Blue workshops in the weeks and months after the 2016 election. Now, the second workshop and its aftermath have been captured in "Braver Angels: Reuniting America," a one-hour documentary film by Emmy-winning director Jim Brown and produced by Peter Yarrow of the legendary Peter, Paul, and Mary trio.
"Braver Angels: Reuniting America" shows 8 Democratic-leaning voters and 7 Republican-leaning voters moving through a Braver 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 screening, there will be a guided discussion and Q&A period facilitated by Braver Angels volunteers from Maine and New Hampshire.
