Civility First is a grass-roots movement promoting courteous public and private dialogue. We are a group of citizens from across the political spectrum who are concerned about the normalization of uncivil discourse, both online and in other shared spaces.
What Do We Want?
We want to live in a community where we all treat each other with civility and respect. We want our communities, schools, and public meetings to be safe places for honest discourse. We want adults to be better civic role models for children and youth. We want the voices, values, and opinions of all citizens of our democracy to be heard. We maintain that being heard and hearing others will not happen without respectful listening.
What Do We Do?
Will You Join Us?
We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection.”
