Goals
• Bring our community together and restore our community to a place of well-being and positive expectation for a victory in the near future
• Re-examine the Proposition 8 campaign: what went well and where we can improve
• Gather and share the collective wisdom generated out of the discussion in a larger document that can be shared with the state
• Create stronger networks and grassroots structure locally and statewide.

Ground Rules
