Help the Knights of Columbus mend the tone of America’s political discourse.
Responding to Americans’ growing frustration with campaign rhetoric and the tone of the national discourse, the Knights of Columbus has launched a national, non-partisan initiative to give voice to Americans’ desire for civility in public discourse.
A new website and a series of full-page national newspaper ads – beginning with an ad in the July 26th edition of USA TODAY – encourages readers nationwide to sign the online petition at CivilityinAmerica.org. Facebook users can show support by “liking” the petition at Facebook.com/CivilityinAmerica.
This initiative is in step with Knights of Columbus-Marist polling that finds nearly 8 in 10 Americans are frustrated by the tone of the country’s political conversation.
