Incivility is on the increase in today’s world. Recent events making the headlines emphasize the need for action to restore civility to society. But all is not lost. There is a movement to increase awareness of this issue and develop strategies and materials to combat this global problem.

A consortium of individuals and groups working to restore civility in society will be convening May 17-19, 2021 at the George Washington Masonic National Memorial (GWMemorial.org) in Alexandria, VA and on Capitol Hill.  Among these groups is the Worldwide Civility Council, the Institute for Civility in Government, Institute for Civil Civic Engagement, Institute for Civil Dialogue, and the Masonic Family Civility Project.

This timely, important meeting of organizations engaged in the civility space is hosted by several organizations who all share the objectives of encouraging open dialogue, purposeful thought, and capacity building among all groups in pursuit of building a more civil society.

Designed to be a springboard for action, this important meeting is intended to open conversations around our various goals, and how we can leverage the strengths of each, while remaining independent.  Groups and speakers from around the globe are being invited to attend and participate in the discussion sessions.

The Urgency of Civility Conference will begin with an informal reception the evening of May 17, 2021, and will formally open the morning of May 18, with facilitation of a wide range of topics within the civility space. The sessions on May 19 will feature a keynote speaker, plenary and breakout sessions on specific topics that are designed to meet the needs of the various participants. A farewell dinner will wrap up what is expected to be a very fruitful and worthwhile session. We invite you to be a sponsor for one or more of the activities of this important conference.
