Admit it: in this new world of bilious political warfare, you've said at least one thing you regret. Incivility is catching.
Long-time political commentator Sally Kohn found herself doing the same thing. She stopped to wonder: where does civic ugliness come from - and what does it cost? When we're all emotionally invested in our points of view, can it be stemmed?
She took on a worldwide trek to find out. She's talked to scientists and researches, terrorists, trolls, and hate groups. She has success stories of people who walked away from hate. From all those avenues, she derives workable steps to getting ahead of the damage incivility can wreak.
Sally Kohn is a familiar face from Fox and CNN. Her work has appeared in the Washington Post, New York Times, New York Magazine, USA Today, and Time. She also works as a communications consultant and was previously a campaign strategist for the Center for Community Change, a fellow at the Ford Foundation, and a strategic advisor to the Social Justice Infrastructure Funders, as well as a fellow at the National Gay and Lesbian task Force Policy Institute. She joins our in-house journalist for an evening installment of This Is Now with Angie Coiro.
