At the Board of Directors July 2018 meeting, the following addition to Corpora was approved and is to be considered effective immediately.
Corpora Article X, Grievances and Sanctions, A. General, Add Section 4: Hate Speech
Hate speech is not tolerated in the Society. Hate speech is speech or symbols that offend, threaten, or insult individuals or groups, based on race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability or other traits. Such symbols and speech have no essential part of any discussion of ideas and are of so little value to the Society that any benefit that may be derived from them is clearly outweighed by the harm caused. The use by any participant in the Society may result in possible sanctions up to and including revocation of membership and denial of participation.
Please report any possible instances of hate speech to your Kingdom Seneschal, the Society Seneschal or the President of the SCA immediately. For more information about hate speech and the reporting of same, please refer to the Society Seneschal’s Handbook.
Corpora will be updated shortly.
Comments are strongly encouraged and can be sent to:
