STP Network

A home for long-term power building across the progressive movement

No Hidden Agenda

March 12, 2020 – March 26, 2020

How might we...

  • Governing Power: How might we shift governing power more towards justice?
    • How might we attract a new set of leaders to become base-builders initially focused on the right to vote for formerly incarcerated people?
      • How might we test for potential roles of leaders in RTV; clubs challenge old assumptions; and try new potential roles?
        • How might we immediately test a core member's ability to lead?


Learning now about core members’ leadership skills to co-design and lead a meeting will inform RTV roles and possibly uncover new role components.


Thomas will ask Christopher, our lead organizer to work with core team member to co-design and lead the 3/25 Core Meeting, this includes reminder calls, agenda, people doing their homework, etc.


  • Team people showed up
  • Follow up on homework assignment (reflections, questions, suggestions on ‘structures’ of right to vote clubs, ready to share
  • Reminder email/calls happen
  • Learning or reaffirming steps you’re holding as basic to this task
  • What was the time it took to prepare and collaborate?
    • Providing list, script.  etc.
  • Where was the most needed support?
  • Thomas – Will feel affirmed if it happens. Feeling Joyous.
  • Jon- Would feel taller!


Requires us to be flexible and meet people where they are at given circumstances (COVID-19).

Always have an action plan! Jon, Thomas and Christopher were planning meeting with Core Leaders as part of regular DNA meeting, reflection there was that this is ongoing work. 

Work over the next days, weeks and months to be able to test out roles. 

We’re moving to even more distributed leadership.


People agreed to take on more tasks in coming month, 6 weeks. Want to get to MVP and then we’ll get it out there and test drive.
