A sea of civility flooded the Hotel Congress patio on Sunday, Jan. 19 — the kind of day that makes nearly everyone cordial: sunny, 75 degrees and filled with music to make all ages dance. It was the sort of afternoon where everyone knew everyone, whether you'd ever met them or not. And it benefited a cause on which everyone can agree: We'll never accomplish anything if we can't have a civil conversation.
Tucson Weekly happenings photographer C. Elliot was there, and dispatched this photo collection of the Concert for Civility, hosted by the Fund for Civility, Respect and Understanding, established by the family and friends of Ron Barber in the wake of the January 8, 2011 shootings.
