The National Civility Center creates partnerships in civility worldwide.
Our newest partners are featured here.
Community Civility Counts
Community Civility Counts, a nationally recognized campaign that started in Gary in 2015, will partner with The Civility Center (civilitycenter.org), a longtime non-profit organization, as both organizations continue to expand and bring awareness to #CivilityCounts in communities and classrooms.
The partnership fits for The Civility Center, with an international board of directors and a mission “to be the catalyst for conversation about civility in society and to provide leadership, resources, and tools that empower individuals and organizations to be civility champions in their communities.”
The Civility Center is a resource clearinghouse with a civility toolkit, a speakers’ bureau and other features at civilitycenter.org. The Center recently released its Civility Scorecard, which is designed to encourage political candidates to speak in a civil manner so that voters can be informed about important issues.
The partnership also fits for Community Civility Counts, which sold out its first World Civility Day last April in Gary, Indiana, attracting visitors from nine states and three nations and civility groups that included The Civility Center.
Representatives of both organizations recently attended and presented at the biannual National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation conference held in Boston.
Community Civility Counts, which started as a partnership with the Gary Chamber of Commerce and The Times Media Co., has been expanding throughout Northwest Indiana and has been reaching out further with a model of how to bring #CivilityCounts to communities.
It debuted a pilot Civility in the Classroom program last year at Lighthouse College Prep Academy in Gary and, working with a group of teachers, has since expanded it to a full curriculum at Lighthouse and Steel City Academy charter schools this year. The curriculum can be offered to schools in and outside the Region.
