Red and Blue Americans working together to depolarize our country.

Acting from the Better Angels of Our Nature

The United States is disuniting. The last presidential  election only made clear what many have feared – that we’re becoming two  Americas, each angry with the other, and neither trusting the other’s  basic humanity and good intentions. Today Americans increasingly view  their political opponents not only as misguided, but also as bad people  whose ways of thinking are both dangerous and incomprehensible. This  degree of civic rancor threatens our democracy.

Launched in 2016,  Better Angels is a bipartisan citizen’s movement to unify our divided  nation.  By bringing red and blue Americans together into a working  alliance, we’re building new ways to talk to one another, participate  together in public life, and influence the direction of the nation.

We draw our name from Abraham Lincoln's first inaugural address.  With the nation on the brink of civil war, he implored us to act from 'the better angels of our nature.'  We believe the time is upon us to answer Lincoln's call once again.
