National Institute for Civil Discourse


  • Engage Across Differences

Engaging people in constructive conversations across our divides

The National Institute for Civil Discourse is a non-partisan organization founded to promote healthy and civil political debate. NICD is devoted to the principle that people with different values and political preferences, can discuss their differences in a civil and productive manner. This approach builds bridges of understanding across our divides and engages our differences constructively to advance solutions to our most pressing challenges. We believe the American people will be our saving grace. We are less divided than we seem and hungrier for a more constructive approach to politics. Our programs are also designed to encourage elected leaders to put country ahead of partisanship.
