List of Potential ASELF Task Forces

List of Potential ASELF Task Forces

(Many of these might either merge with other Task Forces, or morph into several Task Forces. Some might be dropped; others might be added.)

While the Vision does have priorities among these topics, some of which are indicated in boldface, each Task Force will be formed whenever people relevant to that Task Force's topic become available.  
Each Task Force will be about one of the topics below. Each Task Force will be finding, linking up, and synergizing, the grassroots individuals, groups, and organizations who are focused on, working in, that Task Force's topic.
