SYP LogoIn today’s fast-paced, electronic society full of tweets, texts, television and reality shows – we seem to have lost the ability to truly talk with one another. We’ve lost the art of “civility”. Have you noticed how public discourse has deteriorated to shouting, name-calling and, at its worse, violence and hostility?

How do we return to civility?

The Greater Shreveport Chamber of CommerceThe Community Foundation of North Louisiana and the Louisiana Association for Non-Profits (LANO) are leading a call to civility in Shreveport-Bossier. The campaign encourages individuals, organizations, local churches, businesses, elected officials, schools and government entities to SPEAK UP, SPEAK YOUR MIND, and SPEAK YOUR “PEACE” – yet do so in a way that is respectful and productive.

Sign up and make the pledge to Speak Your Peace!
