How It Got Started

Are you tired of the same hateful exchanges on social media and news sites? Are you really just looking to understand the multiple sides to an issue and cut through the name-calling and fake assertions? Me too. I just want to know the truth, which generally means understanding all positions on a topic and then coming to your own conclusion as to where you stand.
I made this site after getting engaged with Braver Angels so that the fine folks in the workshop I attended could continue our civil discussions about the many polarizing topics of today.
Continuing in that tradition, this site is dedicated to respectful dialogue between people across the political spectrum.
