Teams Working Towards This Vision

815 Choose Civility is a multilayered project involving the media, public institutions and the private sector that promotes and teaches civility as an antidote to civic dysfunction. The team works with three subgroups: education (leadership & youth), the public square and diversity. A project of Transform Rockford, 815 Choose Civility encourages all residents to take the civility pledge, “I pledge to conduct myself in a way that is honest, respectful, considerate and kind, even toward those with whom I disagree.” See how some of our local community members are promoting civility in the region. Watch WREX’s Inspiring 815 segments.

Transform Rockford’s Human Library Project Team is on a mission to build a positive framework for conversations that challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. The Human Library Project provides an opportunity for local individuals to share their life story in a one-on-one setting with the goal of making human connections and starting discussions on topics such as discrimination, immigration, sexism, racism, autism and more. Stay tuned for upcoming Human Library events.
