Co-creating a positive shift towards increased understanding and unity.
What is an Assembly?
An assembly is a group of members of an organization (e.g. an EDA, a policy caucus, a working group, an advisory council, etc.) who meet periodically to make decisions about a specific area or scope of the organization.
Assemblies—often, but not always, properly constituted— hold meetings, some are private and some are open. If they are open, it is possible to participate in them (e.g. attending if the capacity allows it, adding items to the agenda, or commenting on the proposals and decisions taken by this body).
Assemblies are a core feature of Decidim (this website) so it's something worth taking the time to understand.
A collaborative volunteer effort that seeks to create a positive shift away from division and harm towards helping us make real and urgent progress towards increased understanding and unity.

" A problem well understood in half solved. But a problem not understood in unsolvable." Charles Kettering
It's time for some collective sense making so we can understand our current situation from as many angles as possible: what's happening, and what effect it's having? What's needed, and what would the desired impact be?
Come help us make collective sense of our current situation, listen to diverse views, and seek deeper understanding.
