Inland Northwest UU Community, Spokane, WA
This new UU congregation (formed after a values rift within their previous church) wanted to be intentional about fostering an inclusive culture. They have been using Dynamic Governance (a type of Sociocracy) to give them a way to be fair, transparent and consensual in their decision making.
