Striving For A Better Society

Working With Congress To Make Changes

The perception of a “broken Congress” has made civility and bipartisanship a top priority for many in this Country. Urgency of Civility is working with Congress to influence change on Capital Hill. By inviting elected Senators to our Conference, we are discussing ways to improve our society. This partnership helps build the bridge from our community to the Capital.

2021 Virtual Conference Recap

The 2-day virtual conference in May, brought together over 100 attendees along with elected officials, professors, strategists, authors, and renowned speakers.  

The intent was to provide action-oriented resources, facilitate connections and conversations around various public-civility goals and initiatives in order to better the social climate of today.

The conference consisted of four sessions over the course of two days. The conference included presentations as well as moderated panels between the speakers and the audience.

Attendees had the opportunity to discuss how today’s social climate may be positively affected by civility-oriented initiatives, and how the American-experience can be bolstered by the increase of community and political efforts.
