Points of Unity


Points of Unity (POU)
Topics or points upon which we all can agree and wish to work together on. Instead of finding points of disagreement and bickering over details about ideologies and political theories, we've decided that it is best to find what we have in common, and what we can work together on.

At the January '08 meeting in Richmond, the points of unity were generally agreed upon, and further refined in the February meeting in Fredericksburg. There is still a planned discussion for points of unity at the next meeting in April, specifically dealing with the item dealing with Indigenous Peoples.
