Join the Movement

It’s not about winning the debate.

It is about witnessing the love that is at the heart of our faith.

We’ve all experienced it. A Facebook post, a family dinner, a water cooler conversation that suddenly turns political with opposing viewpoints. You might get angry. You may go silent. Civilize It is about making room in your heart and speaking peacefully with those with whom you disagree. Imagine what would happen if aggressiveness were transformed into openness and confrontations were turned into thoughtful conversations. Civilize It is a non-partisan movement and a call for all of us to help change the tone, follow our faith, and quiet the quarrels in our day-to-day lives.

I pledge:

1. Civility

To reflect respect, to throw no stones, and to rise above it.

2. Clarity

To align one’s political point of view with a formed conscience, which involves courageously standing up for one’s convictions while humbly remaining open to learn more.

3. Compassion

To encounter others with a tone and posture that say “I see dignity and goodness in you.”
