Freeborn County chooses to become a kinder community . . . one act of kindness at a time.
We choose respect, consideration, empathy, and tolerance as our fundamental values, enhancing Freeborn County’s way of life.
PRINCIPLES OF CIVILITY:
While the Choose Civility initiative was inspired by Dr. Forni’s 25 Rules of Considerate
Conduct, we have chosen to focus on the following 11 rules for our project:
- Pay Attention
- Acknowledge Others
- Think the Best
- Be Inclusive
- Speak Kindly
- Respect Others’ Opinions
- Apologize Earnestly
- Accept and Give Constructive Criticism
- Refrain From Idle Complaints
- Respect the Environment and Be Gentle to Animals
