Review for INSTITUTE FOR CIVILITY IN GOVERNMENT, Houston, TX, USA
I have supported this Institute from it's beginning. I had held local elective office and worked in political campaigns and with our political system as a Pricinct Chairman and Election Judge for more than 30 years. Founders Cassandra Dahnke and Tomas Spath had a vision of the partisan future and the critical need for civility in government. They hold seminars, primarily in churches and schools, which include volunteer elected officials participating. Mostly U. S. Congressmen and Senators have found this a valuable forum for them with thier constituents, especially youngsters. Needless to say, the Institute has grown steadily. They have taken groups, adults and students, to Washington, D.C., to meet legislators and their staffs to ask questions and present positions on issues of concern. The Institute depends heavily on contributions from individual supporters and churches. Their results have become obvious and they now have many individual stories of successes effecting those who have participated in their work. All contributions are applied to their work. There are no paid staff. The Institute deserves your support, how ever small or large. I am not affiliated with the Institute; only a contributor.
