Thank to all those who made our Civility Summit possible. We appreciate everyone’s time, honesty, passion and dedication. See the above graphic representation that was created throughout the evening to summarize and reflect the conversation.

We look forward to using the Civility Summit as a jumpstart for: What’s next? What can we do? How can we put our values-in-action? How can the community come together as one? How can we become proactive instead of reactive? How can our values guide us?
