National Institute for Civil Discourse celebrates 3rd anniversary

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

This evening former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly will help celebrate the third year of the National Institute for Civil Discourse (NICD).  

This event is by invitation only, due to the space of the NICD building in Downtown Tucson.

Former Congresswoman Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly were the inspiration behind the institute's mission, which is to bring elected officials together to solve the big issues and public demand for civil discourse. 

NICD says they have made progress in the past three years chipping away at the incivility that is too rampant in culture today. They have three focus area, the media, elected officials and the public.  The group has been working with the public to better understand mental health and early detection.

So they started text, talk and act to improve mental health.  It allows a group of people to answer questions and talk about mental health. 

The NICD was created after the January 8 shooting.  The University of Arizona was committed to make something good come out of a tragic situation. 

At this evening's event they will celebrate the past three years and talk about the future of NICD.  One thing to keep in mind this is not open to the public, it is by invitation only.
