Town’s Civil Discourse Initiative

The Town of Provincetown asked the MA Office of Public Collaboration (MOPC) to assist the Town with exploring ways to improve and revive civil discourse in town interactions, especially online, social media interactions. Promoting civil discourse means finding ways for the community to talk with one another where all voices can be heard and decisions can be made together. To date, the MOPC facilitation team has conducted interviews with 24 community members and disseminated a community-wide survey which received 171 responses. Below is a brief summary of what we heard.
