Civics, Civility, and Circles—How to Restore & Create Community, Now!

In today’s fractionalized, tribalized world it seems what divides us is often more apparent than what unites us. Add the cacophonous sound track of incivility that dominates discourse and a toxic environment emerges that is fraying the fabric or our communities. Most Americans would like to see things change. We talk to several leaders committed to making change happen using creative and innovative ways to educate, communicate, and engage residents, all designed to be used by anyone wishing to start positive change—right now.

iCivics uses interactive video games to make understanding government fun and engaging. The National Institute for Civil Discourse offers practical tools and programs that get people talking to each other respectfully, regardless of their points of view. Ben Franklin Circles, now with more than 300 groups across the country, helps build community by guiding conversation that rises above the fray and gets people thinking about bigger concepts that affect us all.

Free! Thursday, March 28, 1-2 p.m. Eastern / 12-1 p.m. Central / 11-12 Mountain / 10-11 Pacific
