Save our republic in 2020
Get On The Bus!
2020 is already shaping up to be one of the most divisive years in modern American history.
But that’s where we come in — with your help.
As polarization tears at the fabric of America, Better Angels is buckling up for 2020. We’re launching a multi-state bus tour to change the conversation in communities, college campuses, and at political rallies across the country, from April to May, from Los Angeles, California all the way to our convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.
We’re asking folks a question – what does it mean to be an American? What divides us, and what unites us across the divides? Through speeches, and Better Angels debates held across the nation, we invite the American people to give the answer – and make this republic a house united.
America deserves a new story this election season. But it won’t happen without you.
Please consider a gift to support Better Angels 2020 and help us get on the road!
Pulling out all the stops
What does it mean to be an American?
We can’t build a house united unless we remember that we are one people, whether black or white, red or blue. This is the conversation we need to have in America. How are we going to get your neighbors talking about what unites us across the divide?
Better Angels Debates:
What makes Better Angels Debates special?
Better Angels Debates invite you and a group of your fellow citizens to share what you actually believe – no more and no less. And they’re open to all: anyone in the room can speak, whether they are a local leader or the person who will sweep up after the event is done.
American Identity Speaking Tour:
Better Angels spokesperson John Wood, Jr. has a unique story to tell: the son of an African-American Democratic mother from Los Angeles and a white Trump supporting father from Tennessee, once one of America’s youngest congressional nominees and a recognized voice for national unity, Wood will speak to the unique story of America as one country greater than the sum of its parts – and help start this conversation about who we are as a nation that you get to finish.
We’re going to save our Republic to the sounds of bluegrass, hip-hop, jazz, country, and the sounds that prove that in our diversity we are one. We’ll be joined at different stops by some of the most exciting musical acts in the country. Announcements coming soon!
Mobilizing our grassroots support
We are excited to have volunteer coordinators on the ground in all 50 states planning and organizing the stops, reaching out to thousands in each location, and ginning up web and social media buzz along the way.
We’ll roll into our 2020 Convention in Charlotte with the momentum and feel of a presidential campaign — but with one big difference:
This campaign is about bringing us together. It’s about saving our republic and renewing our bonds with one another in a time of need.
Get on board — support us!
There are going to be many people trying to tear the American family apart in 2020. Join the one campaign that’s bringing us together. Get on the Bus with us, and join the movement to unite America!
