Consensus Decision-Making to Counter Oppression I & II

  • 06/20/2019
  • 3:00 PM - 5:30 PM
  • DoubleTree, Grand Ballroom V, Spokane, WA

Please attend both!

PART 1: Let's Dig In, 3-4 PM

Utilizing more collaborative models is key to countering oppressive forces found at the very core of our ‘operating systems’ and within congregational life. In this session, we explore the basics of how organizations have used consensus decision-making to successfully disrupt white supremacy and reorient toward power-sharing.

PART 2: Digging Deeper, 4:30-5:30 PM

Consensus takes too long! Isn’t modified consensus just agreeing on some stuff and voting on other stuff? I’ve seen consensus be oppressive, too. It would never work here. We tried it once; it was awful. Together, we’ll unpack common misconceptions, pitfalls, and roadblocks when implementing this transformative, more equitable model.


Amy Smith, Jim Krawarik-Graham, Lori Stone Sirtosky, and Rev. Elizabeth Carrier-Ladd
