All invited to join in George Fox Civility Project

Do you wish there was something you could do to help overcome America’s increasing  polarization before it tears our country apart?

You can! Connect with the 2020 George Fox Civility Project. The 2020 GFCP has three elements: two events and a project.

  • The first event will be an introductory session on Monday, Oct. 5, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in Bauman Auditorium (limit: 100 occupants) or Zoom. Participants will learn a new way of thinking about how political leadership should act, and help create a political civility inventory for assessing whether politicians and others strengthen our political culture or destroy it when they communicate about their different views.
  • The second is a project: a field test of the political civility inventory while you watch the vice presidential debate on Wednesday, Oct. 7, and/or the presidential debate on Thursday, Oct. 15.
  • The closing event on Monday, Oct. 19, will feature George Fox professors Mark Hall and Phil Smith in a (hopefully civil!) debate about who should get our vote for president.

You do not have to participate in all three elements. You can attend either event, or both. If you want to participate in the project, you should attend the first event.

Don’t miss this chance to get in on the ground floor of an important university initiative, and help your community and our nation deal with controversial issues more constructively!

If you want  to come in person, plan to be at Bauman a few minutes before 7:30 p.m. If you want to attend via Zoom, keep watching the Daily Bruin – we’ll post the link soon!
