Civilize It

Civilize It

Civilize It: Dignity Beyond the Debate 

A non-partisan call to focus on the dignity of all people, even those with whom we disagree, and to put faith in action.

Pledge to root your political viewpoints in the Gospel and a well formed conscience, which involves prayer, conversation, study and listening. Stand up for your convictions and speak out when you  witness language that disparages others' dignity, while also listening and seeking to understand others’ experiences.

We invite you to join Catholics throughout the United States and model love for our neighbors by pledging to Civilize It and committing to civility, clarity, and compassion in 2020.

 

Step 1:

Let our Basilica community know you are taking the Civilize It pledge. 

Basilica Commitment Form

 

Step 2:

Take the pledge at: CivilizeIt.org 

 

As a community we will work together to honor human dignity through civil conversation.
