Think about the issues…
Prepare to discuss the issues you want to raise and the issues you think others might raise. These may involve difficult conversations, so think about how you might express yourself in advance. Be ready to share your ideas and give some thought to various options that may bring about a solution. Brainstorming beforehand with a friend or relative might help.
