January 2022 Coordinator’s Corner

Jan 12, 2022

Happy New Year! As we enter the new year, the Braver Angels mission "We bring Americans together to bridge the partisan divide and strengthen our democratic republic" remains a worthy cause. We hope that you'll find opportunities to participate throughout this newsletter.

In organizational news, Will Clemmer has decided to take a hiatus from his active leadership role at Braver Angels. Will was instrumental in launching Braver Angels in Washington and has been involved in many high-impact projects at the national level. We thank Will for his four years of service, vision and mentorship.

Sharmin Banu has agreed to fill Will's position as the Pacific Region Lead (Blue) in addition to her State Coordinator role.

For any questions or suggestions, feel free to reach out to us at

Final Thoughts

This is our first newsletter since the departure of Will Clemmer, our first and former Washington State Coordinator and, most recently, our Pacific Regional Lead (Blue). The newsletter team would like to thank Will for his leadership, his perspective, and his words of wisdom. And speaking of his words, may they continue to inspire. From his recent email: "It's been a pleasure working with you all in my roles as Pacific Regional Lead (Blue) and as a Washington State Coordinator. We've accomplished a lot together! I'm grateful for the opportunity to have done such fulfilling work with Braver Angels and with so many inspiring and dedicated leaders...I intend to stay involved in my local Braver Angels Alliances and attend workshops and events as time allows. I treasure the relationships I've forged here and look forward to keeping in touch with you over the months and years ahead. Thank you again for everything you do!"
