April 14, 6:30 – 8:30 pm: Consensus-Based Decision-Making Training
Facilitators: APIRG Staff and Board
Consensus-based decision-making is a method by which an entire group of people can come to an agreement. The input and ideas of all participants are gathered and synthesized to arrive at a final decision acceptable to all. Using consensus, rather than voting or hierarchical processes, we work not only to achieve better solutions, but also to promote the growth of community and trust. Consensus-based decision-making is a key skill for collectives who are committed to non-hierarchical, anti-oppressive organizing. Learn about the principles and processes of this decision-making model, and bring these skills back to your own communities!
Both workshops are free and open to the public.
