Each month, Citizens’ Climate Lobby supporters gather locally for a monthly meeting where we educate ourselves by listening to a guest speaker. On January 11th, John Wood, Jr., Better Angels Director of Public Outreach joined us for our call.

Searching for ways to bridge the partisan divide in America, we hear this month from John Wood Jr. at Better Angels, a national citizens’ movement "to reduce political polarization in the United States by bringing liberals and conservatives together to understand each other beyond stereotypes." Wood is a national leader for Better Angels, a former nominee for Congress, former Vice-Chairman of the Republican Party of Los Angeles County, and author of the upcoming book, "Transcending Politics: Perspectives for a Divided Nation."
