The Horizons Braintrust

The Horizons Project Braintrust includes well-established practitioners, researchers, and funders who are actively working on democracy, human rights, peace and justice in the U.S. and internationally. Their research and practice on key topics like bridging nonviolent action and peacebuilding, preventing identity-based violence, toxic polarization, disinformation/misinformation, narratives, civic engagement and trauma healing are invaluable assets to the Horizons Project. Together with Braintrust members and our partners, we seek to jointly make sense of the ecosystem of actors and their strategies to work towards a more inclusive and just society. The Braintrust members engage with the Project by making connections, expanding the research and learnings to different audiences, and proactively breaking down barriers to improve understanding across the ecosystem.
