In this book, we offer a framework of 11 Simple Rules for communities to use for forging equitable partnerships for each other and for our children. Using these 11 Simple Rules will assist you in establishing a shared vision of quality relationships and interactions, environments, and learning experiences. We hope you will use it as the basis for inclusive conversations that build on the wisdom and experience within your community.
