The first order of business is to analyze the data of this survey to put together teams that maximize our many talents. Skills in presentation, facilitation, meetings, and communication are great here.

This movement can gain valuable energy, ideas, momentum, and insight through the vision of the youth in our community.

Experience with middle, high school, and undergrad student organizing, counseling, and/or teaching is great. Start with leading youth in separate meetings and bring them into the large group. They are the future, and every great movement in history has been impacted by youth involvement.
Communication and Messaging Team- Description
This teams mission is twofold. To analyze the national movement and create common language and mission for our local chapter and to share that language and mission with the community. Big ideas should be turned into slogans that are catchy, and meet people where they are in the cultural norms of that community. Duties will include sharing ideas and messages on social media, and communicating with local press. Skills in web page design, social networking, and branding/advertising is helpful here.

The more people involved and welcomed into the movement, the better. There is strength in numbers as well as untapped human wisdom, potential, and volunteering energy all around us. The goal of this team is to identify barriers to participation and help overcome them- ideas include organizing food at meetings, planning for childcare, brainstorming transportation to and from meetings as well. The goal is to make this a unifying campaign that brings people together in a safe and comfortable way. Good people skills and knowledge of cultural norms is a plus.

Bonus if you have participated in civil disobedience in the past.
