A few years ago, the idea of CivilTalk started with a phone call. Matt, our co-founder, called his friend Kate and told her about his mom's frustration with social media. Matt's mom simply wanted to share her thoughts and make a difference in her community. However, she found time and time again that her voice was drowned out by all the online trolls and hateful comments. Was there a way to give people a voice again and have a civil discussion?
With the help of Kate, and a few like-minded individuals, the team created CivilTalk. CivilTalk's mission is to connect people with each other so they can listen, learn, and collaborate on solutions, without the fear of being shutdown or drowned out.
Change starts with civil discussion.
