Decision Making Process
We will make decisions by consensus
Consensus is a way of reaching an agreement between ALL members of a group. Instead of voting and having the majority decide, a group using consensus is committed to listening to those who disagree and finding solutions that everyone can support.
Topics requiring decisions will be discussed at a meeting and the discussion will continue via email before coming to a decision.
Consensus decision will occur via zoom meeting so that everyone can participate.

Steering Committee
Provide information, education, inspiration, resources, and communication across the network, while advocating for the needed freedom and support from local government and organizations.
