CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) — Our guest today on Featured at 5 is Judith Minter, the co-moderator of Better-Angels.org

Better Angels is a citizens’ organization that aims to unite red and blue Americans in a working alliance to depolarize America.

We try to understand the other side’s point of view, even if we don’t agree with it.

We engage those we disagree with, looking for common ground and ways to work together.

We support principles that bring us together rather than divide us.

The Better Angels National Convention will bring together liberal and conservative delegates from across the country to build our citizens’ movement, form new relationships across the divide, and shape our national agenda going forward.

Meetings frequently include five to eight Republican-leaning citizens (“Reds”) and five to eight Democratic-leaning citizens (“Blues”) who gather together for a half-day or full-day of structured conversations. Independents are also welcome to attend. We only ask that for the purposes of the workshop they identify as leaning either Red or Blue or attend as observers.
