August 2013 workshop: ground rules

In order to have open, respectful conversation in our workshop, it’s important for us to establish some ground rules for the group. Please review these ground rules ahead of the meeting so you will be prepared to participate in discussion.

We strongly encourage you to provide feedback on the ground rules now, as we will only have about 10 minutes to review them during our two-hour training. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions:

Ground rules:

Some of these ground rules came from Queer Bristol Anti-Racist Reading Group and some came from Crossroads Anti-Racism Organizing and Training.

Facilitators’ agreement:

The facilitators have agreed to use the following techniques to encourage productive discussion.
