“How Can We Revive Trust & Civility in Our Everyday Lives?” talk


    “In a follow-on to the University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioral Sciences’ (SBS) “Truth and Trust in the Global Scene” lecture series, SBS’ National Institute for Civil Discourse (NICD) invites Tucsonans to join a conversation regarding actions that we can take locally.

    In response to our nation’s current political divides and mistrust in media, elected officials and each other, NICD launched the Initiative to Revive Civility, which equips Americans with the tools and skills they need to restore trust and civility with people in their everyday lives.

    If you are tired of the personal attacks, hateful rhetoric and polarization that is too often dominating our political discussions, join NICD at The Core to learn about what we can do about it. Participants will learn about the national initiative and join an interactive discussion on how we can revive trust and civility in our community.

    Please feel free to contact our friendly staff for questions at (520) 324-2673.
