Braver Angels’ President, David Blankenhorn ’77 and Chief Development Officer, Rachel Weinstein ’00 will discuss the crisis of our time – political polarization, which can be defined as our loss of trust in one another as citizens and the fear that our political opponents are not simply misguided, but are bad people. Braver Angels’ name is inspired by Abraham Lincoln’s First Inaugural Address in 1861, on the eve of the Civil War, in which he said “We are not enemies, but friends” and calls us to be touched again by “the better angels of our nature.”
David Blankenhorn is president and co-founder of Braver Angels. He co-founded the National Fatherhood Initiative in 1995, founded the Institute for American Values in 1988, and has authored or co-edited 14 books. He grew up in Mississippi and now lives with his family in New York City.
With training in computer science, Rachel Weinstein, Chief Development Officer, has had extensive professional experience in fundraising, technology, and organizational growth. She’s held senior positions at several non-profits and founded three companies. As CDO, she directs Braver Angels’ fundraising activities.
