Storytellers can be the heroes ​America needs right now.

As an entertainment professional, you can be part of the solution. 

Participate in BEL sponsored workshops, webinars, and events.

Create content that transcends and transforms America’s divides rather than fueling them.

As creators of entertainment, integrate depolarizing strategies into projects at their inception or into existing shows already on air.
