In 2011, after the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the death or wounding of 19 others, the Tucson community and the University of Arizona launched NICD to address the divisiveness in political debate and promote healthy, civil discourse. Since its founding with co-chairs former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, NCID has developed programs, many online, and conducted seminars and workshops to address the importance of civility in addressing the polarizing issues that confront our nation, community, and, indeed, our families.
This presentation will address some of the current programs, partnerships, and accomplishments of NICD seeking to improve civil discourse and promote understanding of opposing views.
The speaker, the Honorable (Ret) Ted B. Borek, is a local Ambassador for NICD who retired after nearly fourteen years on the Pima County Superior Court serving on the Civil, Criminal, and Juvenile Benches. He is a graduate of the University of Arizona College of Law (1972) who spent over twenty-four years in the Army, principally in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps. He is a member of the Tucson Presidio Rotary Club.
