What is the Revive Civility Campaign?
Revive Civility is a nationwide campaign to demand civility in the 2016 campaign. The campaign encourages and provides tools for Americans and leaders to take solution-oriented actions to restore and call for civility in our public elections.
Why do we think this campaign is a good idea?
We believe that hate speech, fear mongering, and rhetoric that condones political violence are dangerous for our democracy. The National Institute for Civil Discourse is a national champion for more civil discourse and it’s Revive Civility Campaign will call for our political leaders to lift up the tone and tenor of our politics.
