Ellison's Advice to Confront Racist Trump Agenda in 2018: 'Organize, Organize, Organize'

Working in a fairly conservative engineering firm, this happens to me all the time during work lunches. I haven’t changed anybody’s mind yet on anything I don’t think nor has my mind changed on very many things, but that doesn’t stop me from trying when it comes to ideas I’m still optimistic we can change (such as single payer health care). I do hold a few more typically conservative values, but not from anyone personally convincing me - only from reading.

I don’t know what the metrics on civility are - I haven’t perceived any personal change in my life in civility, so it is hard for me to answer your last question.
