Their Majesties have made the following announcement regarding the new SCA Anti-Harassment policy:
Unto Æthelmearc do Timothy and Gabrielle send greetings,
By now you are likely at least aware that the Society’s Board of Directors has issued a policy on harassment. While it is a bit broad and vague, We feel it is a necessary thing, and a good first step.
I have heard many voice a concern We share, that of the potential for this policy to be abused.
We would like to try and set those concerns at rest, if possible. In Æthelmearc, our Seneschal is Duke Christopher. It is his responsibility to handle these cases. It has been our experience that he is not prone to rash decisions or snap judgments. Hopefully long before his term is up, this policy has been fleshed out a bit, and he will have written policies for his office that make the chain of escalation one that will permanently set our minds at ease.
This is a good thing, and long overdue.
Timothy and Gabrielle
