Choose Civility Chapters & Affiliates

Our goal is to bring this grassroots initiative to communities across the United States…and maybe even further. Civility is a core value of a well-functioning community and one of its defining components, underscoring its general health and wellness. Our quality of life depends in great part on how community members treat each other.

Choose Civility Chapters and Affiliates further the initiative’s mission and growth. Together, we can make this a national movement!

What is the difference between a Chapter and an Affiliate?

  • Chapters are external, community-wide initiatives.
