Volunteer

In addition to the events you can attend right now, we're also looking to grow our alliance so we can bring this important work to all of our neighborhoods, towns, and cities. For that, we need you! Check out how to become a member and get involved in volunteering below.

1. Join Us

Join our legion of Americans who believe that the fight to save our nation begins with a ceasefire among ourselves. Become a member of Braver Angels for as low as $12/year. A member of Braver Angels is part of a national community—we are Republicans, Democrats, and Independents of all political persuasions. We form local alliances and hold local workshops and debates. We discuss our differences with civility and look for common ground. We encourage each other and we organize others do the same. We are a grassroots family fixing our broken politics from the bottom up.

Join us

2. Explore

If you're new to Braver Angels, we encourage you to learn more about us and to explore our range of unique events and offerings. Get trained on how to communicate better with those who hold differing views. Find inspiration in our debates, podcasts, and special groups. Engage in 1:1 Conversations or Red/Blue Workshops.

3. Get Trained

After becoming a member and exploring our programs, interested volunteers are encouraged to apply for one of the free volunteer training programs offered by Braver Angels National. With training, you be qualified as a workshop Moderator, Organizer, Zoom Event Manager, Debate Team staff, or Ambassador. Not sure what's right for you? Consider taking the Ambassador training to strengthen your knowledge of Braver Angels so that you can speak effectively with others about our work. Or contact us so we can help direct you to the training path that best fits your interests.

Whether it’s organizing an event or promoting our efforts, your help is needed to bring red, blues, and others together to talk, listen, and understand.
