OUR QUEST

American Civility Association is on a quest to show America what can happen when we create environments where kindness and respect flourish. We reverse the rising tide of anger, rude behaviors and bullying by educating individuals and families about the dangers of incivility, and equip them with heart tools to live safer and happier lives.

 

WHAT WE KNOW

We have learned that:

  • Gratitude and Kindness are more powerful than Stress and Rudeness.
