Facilitator's experience: 
I have been organizing with grassroots groups to pressure Cargill Inc. to take responsibility for their supply chain issues with palm oil and other rainforest-threatening products for 2.5 years. I facilitate democratic style workshops where we build off of the collective knowledge in the room.
