May has officially kicked off Revive Civility Month for the Tucson community, and the National Institute for Civil Discourse has formed a task force after a proclamation signed by Mayor Jonathan Rothschild last month at the Loft Cinema.

"Rothschild has been a real leader in supporting the campaign," said Carolyn Lukensmeyer executive director of the NICD. “We had 300 people there, all of whom have agreed to participate.”

She said that businesses, social service agencies, health care organizations and educators will take the message of civility into their workplaces.

The nonpartisan and nonprofit organization operates with politicians, reporters and the public through advocacy, research and policy.
