Let’s Talk CIVILITY!


  • CIVILITY is being and seeing the AMERICAN in each of us instead of red or blue.
  • CIVILITY is families COMING TOGETHER instead of holding grudges.
  • CIVILITY is being HEARD without being hurt, SHARING without shouting, UNITING instead of fighting.
  • CIVILITY is predicated upon putting the human back into HUMANITY and HUMANITY back into government.
  • CIVILITY is creating a space where we can be political, AND compassionate, AND considerate, AND above all KIND at the same time.

Let’s bring CIVILITY back into government!!
