Code of Conduct

We expect all volunteers, students, and members to be kind, respectful and community centered.

This code of conduct applies to participants of all ages, all events and spaces, public and private.

Our Core Values

...and we model these values in all of our interactions with and around our students.

Our Expectations

Reporting

If you feel unsafe, unwelcome, or notice that someone else is being harassed, please report it as soon as possible. You can make a report by or speaking with one of the teachers of the current class or email our organizers at mcs.grievance.committee@gmail.com. We expect event organizers and volunteers to be alert and take appropriate action to intervene in preventing or stopping harassment and unacceptable behavior.

In addition, this is a mandatory reporting state. Nebraska "require[s] all persons to report suspected abuse or neglect, regardless of profession" (https://www.childwelfare.gov). This means that all persons must report any and all of the following concerns:

If you have concerns about a student that fall outside of these, please have a discussion with an instructor.

While this code of conduct applies to our classes and events, if you are being harassed by a community member outside our organized spaces, please, let us know about it. We will take all good-faith reports of harassment by community members seriously. We reserve the right to refuse an individual's attendance to any of our events or spaces based on the individual's previous behavior at our events or outside events, towards our members and students or people who are not members of our group in any way. We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we've received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of community members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.
