At General Assembly, we discuss proposals and make decisions using an 85% consensus model. Consensus means that each individual has both an opportunity and a responsibility to voice their truth and participate in the decision-making process. Everyone gets their say, but not everyone gets their way! We use hand signals to make process points and express our excitement or concerns about issues at hand. Approval requires that at least 85% be in support of a decision, and that no more than 15% feel that they cannot live with the decision. A “block” is only used when an individual feels that a proposal violates morality or ethics, and/or would damage the group and the movement if approved. If our facilitation team works well, and everyone is patient and listens well, such strong concerns get hashed out early in the process and blocks are never used! If consensus cannot be reached on a proposal at any given GA, it is handed back to an individual or Working Group for refinement and can be submitted again at a subsequent GA, until consensus is reached.
