The 2020 election is exactly one year away from now and the Door County Civility Project is trying to make politics more respectful. Shirley Senarighi, a volunteer for the DC Civility Project was at Hope United Church in Sturgeon Bay on Sunday promoting a new campaign called “Golden Rule 2020: A Call for Dignity and Respect in Politics”. It’s not a coincidence this event is on the day that is exactly one year before the 2020 election. Next year’s election date is November 3, 2020. Senarighi explains how people can become more civil when discussing politics.
The “Golden Rule 2020” was created by leaders from many Christian denominations and organizations in an event hosted by the National Institute for Civil Discourse in Washington, D.C. in May of this year. Many churches throughout the country are having events to promote civility and respect in politics.
