The Civility Project Speak Your Peace Page 1 of 2 The Civility Project, Speak Your Peace, is an initiative by Beaufort s first and oldest, The Rotary Club of Beaufort, The best way to determine what a community wants is to listen to what its people have to say. This is a fundamental principle of democracy. Disagreements can lead to healthy debate, which brings new information and ideas to light. When a particular issue strikes at the fundamental beliefs of a group or individual, the debate can be especially fierce. In these situations, it becomes more important than ever to practice civility. The purpose of the Speak Your Peace Civility Project is to urge the citizens to communicate in a more respectful and effective way. This is not a campaign to end disagreements. It is a campaign to improve public discourse by simply reminding ourselves of the very basic principles of respect.
