RSVP here.

We also invite those who are interested in doing so, to arrange their own Community Consultation. This can be done through any group or organization you are a part of, or simply by gathering a number of friends and neighbors together and going through the Consultation process. The ideal number of people to have in any one small group discussion is between 5-8 as one person will have to facilitate the discussion and one person will have to take notes of what is said. Consultations that are larger than this should plan to break into multiple small groups with facilitators and notetakers in each. If you are interested in hosting a Consultation and have not gone through our Community Consultation facilitator training, please email or call 202-727-2736.
