How does America practice civility in an era increasingly defined by shrill, one-way communication? How do we raise the next generations without caving in to school or house-of-worship shootings as a new normal? Have we already crossed from civil to uncivil society? If so, where are the tools, programs, and role models for a renewed civil society going to come from? And if not, what should give us hope? A vibrant mix of today’s leaders delve into these questions about how we ensure our country lives up to the standards of the proverbial Good Society.
