Seattle People's Fellowship
Youth-Led Engagement in the Seattle area
An assembly is a group of members of an organization who meet periodically to make decisions about a specific area or scope of the organization.
Assemblies hold meetings, some are private and some are open. If they are open, it is possible to participate in them (for example: attending if the capacity allows it, adding points to the agenda, or commenting on the proposals and decisions taken by this organ).
Examples: A general assembly (which meets once a year to define the organizations main lines of action as well as its executive bodies by vote), an equality advisory council (which meets every two months to make proposals on how to improve gender relations in the organization), an evaluation commission (which meets every month to monitor a process) or a guarantee body (which collects incidents, abuses or proposals to improve decision-making procedures) are all examples of assemblies
About this assembly
We’re meeting young people where they’re at to invite them into every step of the process.
We’re a group of 12 young people between the ages of 14 & 21 who live, work, study, and / or play in Seattle. We're working to get as many young people involved in participatory budgeting as possible.
Purpose of action
To engage youth with disabilities, youth who are trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming, young people who have been impacted by the justice system.
