Better Angels is a nonprofit bipartisan citizens’ movement to reduce political polarization in the United States by bringing liberals and conservatives together to understand each other beyond stereotypes, forming red/blue community alliances, teaching practical skills for communicating across political differences, and making a strong public argument for depolarization.
Sage Snider is a fiddler, singer, dancer, and songwriter based in Nashville.
Andy Roth started as a folksinger in the late 60s and went on to a career as a musical comedy performer, with roles in the movie Grease and Broadway’s They’re Playing Our Song. Now a psychologist, Andy was disturbed by the anger surrounding the 2016 election and joined Better Angels.
