How It Works

Nolan Finley and Stephen Henderson bring their story and their perspectives on the importance of civility, despite different stances and perspectives, to communities, workplaces, and audiences throughout the Midwest.

Programs run 60 or 90 minutes, and we now offer a Part 2 half-day interactive workshop to expand on the lessons and techniques learned in an introductory session.

Thanks to generous sponsorships from Delta Dental and Huntington Bank, this program comes to hosting organizations free of charge as long as an in-person event is within two hours of driving distance from Detroit. (All virtual programs are free of charge to hosts and participants.)

When a program requires travel and overnight stays, accommodations and travel must be covered by the host organization.

In this workshop, you'll learn how to:

  • Agree to disagree
  • Engage in civil conversation
  • Build respect for each other’s humanity
  • Learn to listen to other sides
  • Use what you hear to challenge or affirm your own views
  • Stay curious
