Sens. Susan Collins and Angus King will participate in an in-depth online conversation on finding new ways to bring bipartisanship back to Congress. The live Zoom meeting will be hosted by the Maine Alliance of Braver Angels, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to bridging the partisan divide and strengthening this country’s democratic republic.

The forum will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept.27. Attendees must register to attend; register at 

“The unusual qualities of our two U.S. senators who embody the uniqueness of our state, especially their mutual bipartisanship, make them the perfect political figures to discuss this vital American topic,” said Karla Doremus-Tranfield, Braver Angels Maine moderator who will direct the discussion.

The one-hour program will include both direct conversation with the senators as well as audience questions. Registrants can submit questions prior to the live show through their meeting confirmation.

Topics to be explored include:

• What is it about Congress these days that allows for some things to get done while many problems go unaddressed because of a stalemated process?


• What can our senators do to make Congress more effective in solving the nation’s problems in a bipartisan way?

• How can we, the public, support changes that will result in more bipartisan legislation?

Braver Angel is a citizen-run organization uniting “red” and “blue” Americans in a working alliance to depolarize the country. Through moderated in-person and online forums throughout the country, over 10,000 people from both sides of the country’s social divide currently engage in finding ways to bring civility back to the nation’s social fabric.
