Braver Angels of Central Arkansas is an alliance/chapter of the larger Braver Angels organization.
Braver Angels of Central Arkansas (BACA) consists of an Executive Committee (EC), a Volunteer Working Group (VWG), General Alliance members, and Alliance Co-Chairs. Guests are always welcome to attend alliance meetings and will be encouraged to join Braver Angels as dues-paying members. (Only dues-paying members qualify to be officers and to vote.)

Volunteer Working Group
For Braver Angels members who are willing to devote their time and energy to a larger role, we invite volunteers to become part of the VWG regardless of their political leaning. This group supports the activities of BACA such as:
Organizing, leading, moderating, chairing workshops and events;
Helping to staff workshops and events for set-up, registration, administration, and/or clean-up;
Recruiting new members;
Being an advocate for Braver Angels in the community;
Voicing opinions and ideas to the Executive Committee
The first two types of members above include trained/certified (via national BA process) moderators, organizers, participant managers, & Zoom feature managers. They may form as a separate program committee with one person designated as leader.

Programs and Events
Since we first began working to develop a Braver Angels alliance in central Arkansas, we have hosted several events, beginning with a skills workshop at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in November 2018. Other workshops were held in 2019 in Fort Smith, Jacksonville, and in Little Rock at the main Central Arkansas Public Library. In 2020, we hosted several workshops, programs and events online and have a number of other plans for 2021.
We provide presentations on Braver Angels and polarization to local groups and organizations upon request, including Rotary Clubs, Catholic High School senior class, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, book clubs, merchants’ associations, college groups and others.
We began monthly public meetings online in July 2020 and continue to alternate local online programs with participation in national workshops and events. View Our Schedule
