Welcome to Better Outcomes

Better Outcomes was established to decrease the amount of negative, divisive uncivil communication in the world today.

Better Outcomes will create communities to help people learn, practice and use Civil Discourse.

Better Outcomes’ goal is to spread understanding, co-operation and peace.

Our Founder, Louis H. Kraus is a second-generation American. He grew up in a traditional Jewish home and was introduced to what we now call Civil Discourse in an early age. When he said something nasty about someone, he was told that what he had said was “Evil Speech.” We have adopted this term for the derogatory, belittling, damaging speech we hear so often.

Better Outcomes structure is based on Mr. Kraus’ background, education in social work and mediation and experience as an adult Parole Officer and nursing home administrator. When you add a lifetime of unusual experiences, you get a person with an unusual worldview.

Mr. Kraus incorporated Better Outcomes in the State of Ohio on July 16, 2013. It is a nonprofit designated as a 501(C)(3) by the Internal Revenue Service. Its NTEE Classification is R63: Censorship, Freedom of Speech & Press. Contributions to it are tax-deductible.

We are nonprofit, non-partisan and neutral. We intend to make Better Outcomes the role model for and champion of open, honest, civil communication.

Our goal is to spread peace everywhere and give the victims of Evil Speech a voice. By doing this we can bring people together civilly to get better outcomes.
