The Groton Civil Discourse Project
We are neighbors, family and friends from in and around Groton who are concerned by the rancor and incivility in our community. We have come together as a group with the intention of finding ways to talk with each other and listen to each other, particularly when we have differing views.
The Groton Civil Discourse Project seeks to foster an environment where people feel free to openly express their opinions on a wide spectrum of issues, to share in the diversity of perspectives in a respectful forum and to be respected in return.
To bring people with diverse positions together to learn the basis of opposing views in an atmosphere of respect and trust and, in doing so, help build community.
