Doing the Work: Alliances in the News
Vermont Braver Angels Live!
Braver Angels of Franklin County, Vermont hosted a picnic on September 11, 2022. We gathered at the base of our community ski slope in a new recreation center in St. Albans to share our experiences and inspire others to start Alliances in Vermont. Fifty-five people from all around Vermont (and beyond) showed up and spent three active hours together.
The group included many local politicians and state candidates from all sides of the aisle.
Steal this idea! Braver Angels in Jackson, MS, recently launched a novel way to get Reds and Blues together: a watch party (yes, with snacks!) to see recorded debates between Republican and Democrat US Senators and then to discuss in Red/Blue pairs. On June 23, 2022, nine Reds and nine Blues met to see Fox News' Bret Baier moderate the debate between Senators Bernie Sanders and Lindsay Graham. Nic Lott, Red co-chair of the Jackson Alliance, came up with the idea; he and Blue co-chair Paul Buckley are planning similar events this month and next.
