April Lawson: Leading Better Angels Debates to Depolarize America

August 8, 2019 by April Lawson

April Lawson is the director and lead architect of debates at Better Angels, a national organization that has surged into the spotlight by effectively teaching citizens to combat polarization and restore civil dialogue across America. April’s leadership informs Better Angels’ partnership with ACTA — and our shared vision to help students build a culture of respectful dialogue and viewpoint diversity on college campuses.


Launched in 1995, we are the only organization that works with alumni, donors, trustees, and education leaders across the United States to support liberal arts education, uphold high academic standards, safeguard the free exchange of ideas on campus, and ensure that the next generation receives an intellectually rich, high-quality college education at an affordable price.
