    1. Call to Order
    2. Land Acknowledgement:

We acknowledge that the land we occupy has been stewarded by the Abenaki, Wabanaki, Pocumtuc, and neighboring nations for millenia before the arrival of colonial settlers. We honor their resilience, wisdom, and living presence by moving beyond words into actions that support Native rights, forward cultural equity, and protect the land, air, and water that give us life. While we do not have answers to the problems that we have inherited from the past, we can commit to asking difficult questions, thinking critically, and holding space for discussions that will lead to a more equitable and sustainable community.

    1. Team agreements:
      • We aim to start on time, end on time, and stay on track.
      • We work together and independently to further the GML's mission and vision.
      • We hold ourselves accountable.
      • We are open to change.
