Inclusive decision-making within communities is an essential precursor to social justice in, and sustainability of organizational systems. We know that thriving communities have at their center strong, inclusive, organized, and civic-engaged people that capitalizes on the ideas and talents of all community members to address challenges or areas of opportunity in that community.
