WeGovern in practice: Reimagining policy for a world beyond violence

When WeGovern, we take action and design policies that reflect our values and our vision of a world beyond violence. In this session, we will transcend the constraints of current systems of power by conjuring policy and action that center decision-making in community. Anchoring in our visions for what is possible in our tribes, networks, organizations, and communities, we will begin to animate the WeGovern principles into policies that enable all of us to thrive.


  • Describe how a commitment to the WeGovern agreements can transform policy for a world beyond violence
  • Identify where you are already in practice with centering decision-making in communities
  • Discuss opportunities to animate WeGovern principles into policies that enable everyone to thrive in a world beyond violence
