Beyond Civility Profiles in
Politics Side-by-Side Series
Beyond Civility, a non-profit group that promotes
constructive dialogue among civic and elected leaders,
is excited to announce their first Side-by-Side will take
place November 12. The series will feature pairs of public
figures from two political parties, a republican and a
democrat, answering questions about the early formation of their political identities.
The series offers an antidote to the contentious and sometimes toxic national
political rhetoric that is serving to polarize our society by inviting local political
leaders to share their reflections on the people and experiences that helped to form
the political beliefs and positions they hold today.
Look for additional Side-by-Sides in January, February and March. Dates and
locations will be forthcoming.
1. Choose a gift tag with a child’s gender and age.
2. Purchase an age appropriate gift for $25-$30.
3. Place the unwrapped gift in a gift bag and attach the gift tag.
4. Drop the gift off at Dinsmore & Shohl LLP, Chemed Center, 225 East Fifth Street,
Ste. 1900, Cincinnati, OH 45202 between December 3-7.
