The Tides Center is serving as fiscal sponsor to Civity, which is a national nonprofit organization that helps leaders build and strengthen their civic networks to address problems in their communities. Civity’s work began by focusing on people and groups that had experienced deep social divides such as civil rights organizations, community organizers, and numerous politicians. Its focus to date has been on developing and honing intentional interpersonal interactions that connect people across and through difference, on learning how to share these skills with others, and on solidifying the research that grounds them. Given Civity’s readiness to grow in scale through a community-based approach, the purpose of this project grant is to reinforce Civity’s 2018 expansion into four new communities across the country through its Seeding Civity projects and to provide support for the scaling of efforts with a national partner, so that they can reach more communities.
