"Sharon Flanagan-Hyde's contribution to the work of Project Civil Discourse is without equal. Her skill in drafting key materials, training our facilitators and reporters, and her overall strategic thinking was essential to the success of our program. If anyone was (and is) an indispensable contributor, it is Sharon."
