Full Principles DraftWe offer support to those who are more impacted by the disaster than us. Strategies that promote distributed agency often enable the most effective adaptation.We work with institutions when they can be in service of our goals of equity and justice.Our process is about solving problems, and in that process we can observe common patterns – yet every crisis situation is unique. We prefer tools that are simple, accessible, freely usable, and well-documented.Overarching.
What are some guiding questions that could guide this principle?
3
Key Insights from below- Ask what is needed. Listen to differing needs. Prioritize based on need. Ask explicit consent. Doing "Something" is not necessarily better than nothing.
Short phrase, declarative sentence, narrative, qustions to ask yourself.
4
EmilioMaybe that "we aim for preparedness and the creation of resilience". We know that people need the agency to solve their own issues, therefore a big part of the work of our networks should be aimed to having communy resilience, preparedness, having tools, training and skills.In an inclusive manner, despite political, socioeconomic, religious or demographic groups?The perceived needs of every community are always different so we need to be open and listen despite thinking that we know what to do.
Tools that have proven to work in previous cases? Howevver open to try new things in a safe and responsible manner?

Barnraising feedbackDon't assume that the whole community wants the same thing.

Split 1 in 2 parts: separate prinicples on how to identify a community

Ask explicit consent

Learn how to follow

Be careful of not using academic language

"Directly experience" reads to me as a spatial concept. Should specifically mention that support will be prioritized based on needs.

Organization/organizing/education

Can we help grassroots organizations to be reado to scale in crisis

Support for people / what does support mean

Listening as a less-affected party.

Organization and boundaries in crisis mapping

"Something" not necessarily better than nothing

Phases and stages

Who is the audience?
Times of support


What does 'strategies' mean?

Adaptive planning, making sure you have a plan B

How to address conflict resolution?

How to avoid a single player, get more management from community members

Acting in response needs to heavily consider the history and culture of a community
Who does "our" refer to?

Structures, interacting community hubs, and setting up aprameters to structures

Define key roles (i.e. communicator, documentarian, facilitator)

Inclusion of the entirety of a community including those disabled, elderly, etc.
We work through problems as if they were fresh, even when we have dealt with them before. Each community is different.What are some examples of tools?

Specific reference to movement generation principles (another principle)

Clarifying/self-check. Show questions to ask yourself under each principle as a way to know if you're following them.

Acknowledge you will mess yp, need to realize, help each other realize we are on it and change.

More concrete examples and understandable language.

More interpretable action words (e.g. listen, humility, reflect)

Ask before you offer

Video submission of examples linked to each principle (how I messed up, what I learned)

With principles, state audience and intention. 'harm reduction'

#5: Locally available replacement parts? e.g. filter cartridge.

This is for you if a) want to help someone else b) you are ok c) if someone is trying to help you and you don't want it, give this
Who is we? A preamble should clearly establish who this is for, and where these came from.
