Abstract[edit source]

The Movement Charter Ambassadors Program is a vital initiative that seeks to involve underrepresented communities in the community review process of the Movement Charter. As an Ambassador representing the Malayalam Community, my experience provided me with a unique perspective on the importance of amplifying voices that have historically been left unheard.

In this presentation, I will share my experience as an Ambassador, the challenges I faced, and the strategies I employed to ensure that my community was fully engaged in the community review process. I will also discuss how the Movement Charter Ambassadors Program can serve as a model for other communities seeking to foster greater engagement and inclusivity.

The Movement Charter is a critical document that guides the direction of the Movement, and it is crucial that all voices are heard during its review. My experience as an Ambassador provided me with a valuable opportunity to help my community play an active role in this process. Through my presentation, I hope to inspire others to become involved in the Movement Charter community review process and to empower underrepresented communities to have their voices heard
