Questions to speakers will not be responded to immediately. Instead, questions will be recorded, prioritized, and responded to via the Web [i.e., a future Facebook page] as soon as possible. Otherwise, this is a democratic, participatory forum where mutual respect and compassion will be the guiding values. For further clarification, please see the handouts regarding the Charter for Compassion.).
