Choose Civility Portland
Portland Public Library invites the Greater Portland community to enhance our public life by choosing civility!
Public libraries are important community center where citizens can gather to civilly discuss issues important to our community. Join us in this ongoing series of events as we explore the issues that affect our community and learn more about both our city and our neighbors!
Choose Civility has hosted numerous programs, in partnership with Lift360, the Maine Humanities Council, the League of Women Voters, and the Portland Press Herald since its inception covering a variety of topics that affect Portland and our society as a whole; including incivility in politics, economic inequality, public health issues, religious intolerance, voter education, how we can become better citizens and neighbors and more. In partnership with the Maine Humanities Council, PPL hosted ‘Creating the Communities We Wish to Live In’ sessions in various locations throughout the city where attendees read a short poem that generated facilitated discussion and questions as to what kind of communities we aspire to be.
We invite you to join us. Please be in touch with any ideas or opportunities: firstname.lastname@example.org
