Reviving Civility: Building Bridges with Civil Dialogue

with Portland Area League of Women Voters


78% of Americans think incivility and political dysfunction prevent our nation from moving forward. We know that dialogue based in civility can uplift and energize, build collaboration, trust and understanding, and transform outcomes – in politics, in facilitating meetings, with co-workers, communicating with your teen, or chatting with neighbors. Learn to avoid tendencies to vilify or demonize others with differing viewpoints by adopting skills of active listening, mutual respect and compassion, as well as effective consideration of all sides of an argument. Learn strategies to disagree and critique, while respecting and affirming all persons. Led by trained facilitators from Portland Area League of Women Voters, a non-partisan, non-profit public policy educational organization empowering citizens to engage in the democratic process, by seeking positive solutions to issues through education and conflict resolution; LWV offers this as a free community service.
