Subject: Papers on Nonviolent Action and Cooperative Decision-Making

As you probably know, I began facilitating free workshops to prepare 
people for nonviolent direct action with the Northern California 
Nonviolence Preparers Collective (part of the Abalone Alliance) in 
1980. Soon after that, I also started facilitating workshops on 
cooperative decision-making and consensus. For these various 
workshops I found it useful to prepare sample agendas which I could 
then easily modify to suit the occasion. I also developed notes and 
handouts that included everything I had learned about these subjects. 
In addition, I have collected some papers developed by other people. 
 From the beginning I have freely distributed these papers and 
encouraged other people to use them to facilitate workshops for 
progressive social change activists in their own area.

I've finally put most of these papers -- the ones I usually 
distribute at workshops -- in Adobe Acrobat Reader (PDF) format on my 
new web site so that anyone can view them, download them, print them, 
and distribute them. Feel free to copy and distribute these papers 
however you see fit (as long as it is for non-commercial use). The 
papers are located here:


Please pass this email message on to anyone you think might be 
interested in these papers.

Also, I try to update these papers regularly with whatever I've 
learned since the last time, so please send me your additions, 
comments, and criticism. Thanks.


P.S. I've sent this note to essentially everyone I know and everyone 
I think might be interested in these papers. I'm sorry for any 
duplicates or for clogging your email if this is something that does 
not interest you.
