What if civility ruled the world?

Civility, or lack thereof, is what defines a society. What is the norm in how we treat other people, particularly when there is disagreement or tension? Come and join the conversation with Connie Ryan, Executive Director, Interfaith Alliance of Iowa to explore this time of incivility. But more importantly, how do we move forward toward a more civil atmosphere in the public square?
