What is a Member?
Do something for your country and for yourself
A member of Better 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.
