In an interview with CBS Interactive, Keith Allred invites Americans who are discouraged by the current incivility in American politics to investigate the National Institute for Civil Discourse’s civility training resources and to join CommonSense American.
A president slams a table and walks out of a meeting. A longtime congressman consistently makes racist comments. A gubernatorial candidate threatens to stomp on his opponent’s face with golf spikes. Family members no longer speak because of political differences. Twitter fights seem constant. Cable news panels are filled with shouting.
Keith Allred, the Founder and President of CommonSense American, accepted The National Institute for Civil Discourse’s invitation to become its new Executive Director and make NICD the platform for CommonSense American. Keith assumed the new position on January 1, 2019.
