There is no “silver bullet” to solve the climate crisis or society’s economic and social justice issues. And there is no “silver bullet” to magically fix society’s current climate of political divisiveness and lack of civic engagement. We need “silver buckshot” -- not one tool, but many.
Most U.S. citizens are struggling to make ends meet, stay healthy and if there is any time left over, have some fun.
This conference is designed to offer easy, practical tips and tools for how to maintain a strong and thriving democracy.
Our two keynote presenters will discuss two of the most important tools we have:
- respect for our fellow citizens, regardless of their political and religious views; and
- engaging in civil discourse
Civil discourse is defined by American University’s Project on Civil Discourse as: truthful, productive, audience-based, about listening and talking and each person’s own responsibility. If you have ever wished for a return to civil discourse and wondered what you could do to help achieve it, this conference will be of interest to you.
Join us as we explore what we can do as individuals to help return our families, communities, and nation to a spirit of respect for those who are different from us, civil discourse, and civic engagement.
The event is produced by Dallas College’s Social Responsibility and Inclusion Office, which consists of three areas: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; Supplier Diversity; and Sustainability. Our goal is to provide no-cost learning opportunities to our students, employees and community members in these three areas.
