As the Acting Director for Methodology and Practice, Braden supports Sites of Conscience members in developing programming, exhibitions and community engagement strategies. He also works with members to build the Coalition’s internal collection of resources, surfacing sites’ expertise and sharing it with others. Braden has trained dozens of organizations in dialogue and planning. He advises both members and non-members, as well as consulted on the new permanent exhibit of the Niagara Falls Underground Rail Road Heritage Area. He has also designed and coordinated a two-year intensive training initiative in dialogic interpretation for Connecticut Landmarks. Currently leading our work with Ford’s Theatre, Braden’s past work has focused on using public education spaces to connect people to each other and the world around them. Before joining the Coalition, Braden worked with the National Park Service at the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site where he oversaw public, education and professional development programs, web and social media, and exhibits.
