Description: Sociocracy has been demonstrated to be a highly effective and efficient decision-making process, especially where a group, such as the Peoples Party of Washington State, is mostly committed to a shared goal or purpose. We will also present the process we use to select and prioritize the policy planks in our party platform using a highly democratic, near consensus model that engages all willing party members.

Bio: Jim Lee is a member of the Coordinators Circle of the Peoples Party of Washington State. He introduced the concept of Sociocracy to the organization, which has adopted it as their primary decision-making process. Jim is a lifelong ‘amateur’ political philosopher and has long been involved in public policy work and actions for democracy, economic justice and the environment, several of which he has organized or led.
