Facilitating Power works to create a thriving culture of participation in which communities work together to solve social, economic, and environmental challenges; and provides essential tools, techniques, and strategy to educators, organizers, service-providers, managers, and community leaders looking to revolutionize engagement and deepen their own facilitative leadership. They are building a network of facilitative leaders with the tools, knowledge, and skills to foster authentic participation, collaborative governance, and community-driven leadership for a living democracy.

Facilitating Power cultivates collective leaps towards a living democracy, a thriving culture of participation, belonging, and transformative power, rooted in place-based knowledge and natural wisdom. Through the practices and pedagogy of a living democracy, Facilitating Power is transforming how we think about and wield power, and building the capacity of facilitative leaders to support their communities to reorganize for community ownership.
