Whereas, civility assists in the process of working together to create lasting solutions to our most pressing challenges, while fostering respect among opposing groups; and

Be it resolved by the Council of the City of Columbus:
That this Council does hereby designate May 2017 to be Revive Civility Month and call upon the people of the City of Columbus to celebrate the month by exercising civility and respect towards each other now and in the future.
