Mayor Kevin Faulconer
From our spectacular coast to scenic communities to scientific innovations, new opportunities start in San Diego every day. The City of San Diego is committed to serving all our neighborhoods, fostering an economically prosperous community and creating a world-class city for all. Together, we're building our better future.
Whereas, civility reduces rudeness, ridicule, and lack of respect for the open exchange of ideas; and
Whereas, civility improves our well-being, restores trust, and encourages Americans to participate in building a brighter future for generations to come; and
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
Whereas, community members should feel comfortable and repsected while exploring worldviews of their own; and
Whereas, the Institute for Civil Civic Engagement of the University of San Diego and San Diego City, Mesa and Miramar Colleges and the University of Arizona's National Institute for Civil Discourse are convening the 6th Annual Restoring Respect Conference in San Diego, APril 18-19, 2017 for the purpose of reviving and restoring civility to achieve a higher quality of public discourse; now, therefore,
Be it proclaimed, that I, Kevin I Faulconer, the 36th mayor of the City of San Diego, for and on behalf of the citizens of San Diego, do hereby proclaim May 2017, to be "Revive Civility Month" in the City of San Diego.
