Civil dialogue involves creating a safe place for participants to assemble to discuss a challenging issue. The process of dialogue typically involves some level of facilitation, agreement to a set of guidelines, and has a central focus on increasing understanding among participants on the topic. Civil dialogue will always seek to foster listening and understanding. This particular framework focuses the dialogue efforts on race relations.
