Olympia Assembly aims to connect people around the goal of building a People’s Assembly. According to Kali Akuno of Cooperation Jackson, a People’s Assembly is “first and foremost a mass gathering of people organized and assembled to address essential social issues and/or questions pertinent to the community.”
Our assemblies occur once per season (winter, spring, summer and fall) and are a place for community members to come together to discuss social, political and economic issues facing Olympia and radical (meaning getting to the root cause) solutions we can take to address them.
The Seasonal Assembly Planning working group does the work necessary for making these assemblies successful, including booking the space, promoting the event and making sure that discussions at the assemblies can be followed up with concrete action.
