Call Norms

We follow the aspirational democratic standards of a feminist process because our work cuts across the intersection of race, gender, sexuality and class. We prioritize power, participation, collaboration, contextualization, reflexivity, inclusivity and responsiveness. This way of working requires us to value relationships, invest in people, and reflect on our own practice, learning together and horizontal collaborations [Oxfam].  All attendees are expected to adhere to these Indivisible Illinois Community Standards.

 

1. Respect the Discussion and the Facilitators. Listen actively when they speak. Listen to the facilitators, especially when they lay out the guidelines for discussion.

2. Share the air and encourage others. This is like the “step up/step back” rule: step up to encourage those who have not participated, step back to make sure you are not dominating the conversation.

3. Practice good faith. Do not assign motives. We cannot know the reasons that a person expresses an idea, assume the best intentions in case of disagreement.

4. Think consciously of our social positions, allowing us to work across our race, gender, sexuality and social differences in ways that are supportive.

5. Make “I” Statements. Rather than objective assertions, statements framed as “I think…” and “I feel….” and “In my experience…” should be used in political discussions.

6. In real time, we will deal with negative or unwanted comments with the oops and ouch system.  Anyone can call out an ouch. A person can say oops to indicate acknowledgement and regret. We can have more conversation and the decision to move on will be up to the ouch caller.

 

Room Etiquette:

  • Use the raise hand feature or write questions in the chat to join the conversation.

  • Be as present as possible: Turn on your video if you can.

  • Keep back and forth in the chat to a minimum.
