Civility is an integral part of strengthening our community. The Better Together-Creating Community through Civility speaker series was created to share the importance of bringing civility back into public discourse. Nearly 1,000 people have attended sessions in the series.
Continuing efforts to foster dialogue on civility and its role in community building in regional discourse is a component of Capital Crossroads, a five-year community visioning initiative.
