Each First Tuesday at Balance Studio we gather as many spokespeople of the nonviolent left as we can. The eight people present who represent the most and the most diverse spread of the nonviolent left will have a conversation on film that will be broadcast. We want this spokescouncil model to spread everywhere. This first meeting on June 7 will be organizational but we will film and carry out the agenda too. Please check out and add to this poll that determines whom we invite as Spokespeople: (You may have to be friends with Tim Anderson to make to add to the Poll. Just friend him if the poll doesn't accept your typed in additions! The conversation will be very focused on only: ~ As a local branch of the movement, using critical mass, what should be our next action, or series of actions? ~ How do we gather enough people to make things happen successfully soon? ~ How do we connect and work with other groups, near and far? Nothing else. #LeadersoftheLovingLeft All resolutions will be posted and we'll have livestream and edited broadcasts asap. Any proposals we agree upon will immediately be shared publically in simple, clear form. We will never act without commitments from the number of people needed for an excellent chance of success. We will "barn-build": a critical mass of us will take on each groups' projects, one-by-one. Everyone gets so weigh in on and give or withhold consent on any decisions the affect them. Free. Donations for the space, cameras, sound, supplies and orgainzing most welcome! Please come, or send a spokesperson from you or your group if you agree with our Mission and our Means. Mission ~ Sustainability ~ Happiness, and ~ Justice for all. Means ~ Nonviolent ~ Transparent ~ Power-equivalent ~ Effecient ~ Consentual self-governance, using ~ Critical mass and ~ Kindness. We need help! Please ~ Spread the word: Invite friends to this event on Facebook, email, social media. ~ Ask your group to select and send a spokesperson ~ Invite your persaonal spokespeople ~ Come help film and record and facilitate ~ Broadcast, podcast, livestream, share ~ Fund and ~ Replicate this process. We will nominate spokespeople from our council to sent to related groups elsewhere. If you have a well known and clearly appropriate spokesperson coming to town too soon to get them to the top of the poll, invite them, and contact Tim at 206.604.8284 so we can get them in. We at Next Step Together commit to function in the role of referee, maximizing consent and fairness. We help with "how" we decide what to do, not "what" we do.

To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. ~Buckminster Fuller "Once a young woman said to me, Hafiz, what is the sign of someone who knows God? I became very quiet, and looked deep into her eyes, and replied, ‘My dear, they have dropped the knife. Someone who knows God has dropped the cruel knife that most so often use upon their tender self and others." ~Hafiz
