For Immediate Release: Drawing on his legislative experience leading the Idaho Senate, Brent Hill, Director of the Next Generation Program for the National Institute for Civil Discourse, will present to the Community Health Academy with Idaho Mayors on September 24, 2021. The presentation, “Are You Tired of Fighting Yet?” will explore the vital role civility played in the founding of America and its continued importance in today’s environment.

More about “Are you Tired of the Fighting Yet?”

Our nation’s capacity to work through our differences respectfully and with civility has reached record lows. Analyses of the more than 13 million roll call votes cast since 1789 reveal that our nation is more polarized than any time since the Civil War. And this incivility is trickling down to our state and local governments.

To address the tough challenges facing our communities, we need leaders who can bridge the great divides within our citizenry—leaders who can motivate and inspire others to achieve extraordinary results.
