Developing Policy Infrastructure
Looking for examples of how to set up decision making strcutures in a collaboartive where a number of partners cannot be involved in advocacy for specific policies (mostly state representatives). Looking for viable alternatives that encourage group engagement in policy advocacy while giving an "out" to those who cannot be affiliated with that work. Do you have a seperate backbone for policy, do you structure membership differently? Who decides policy stands and how do you engage others in this work? How do you handle policy disagreements - what venue for that?
