San Diego JS is dedicated to providing a welcoming and inclusive experience for everyone. We do not tolerate unacceptable behavior of participants in any form.
This code of conduct applies to all San Diego JS spaces, both online and off, including our mailing lists, meetup group, and any location where we are meeting in person. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the San Diego JS organizers.
Some San Diego JS spaces may have additional rules in place, which will be made clearly available to participants. Participants are responsible for knowing and abiding by these rules.
San Diego JS prioritizes marginalized people's safety over privileged people's comfort. San Diego JS organizers will not act on complaints regarding:
If you are being harassed by a member of San Diego JS, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the San Diego JS organizers at sandiegojs-organizers (at) googlegroups (dot) com. If the person who is harassing you is on the team, they will recuse themselves from handling your incident. We will respond as promptly as we can.
This code of conduct applies to San Diego JS spaces, but if you are being harassed by a member of San Diego JS outside our spaces, we still want to know about it. We will take all good-faith reports of unacceptable behavior by San Diego JS members, especially San Diego JS organizers, seriously. This includes unacceptable behavior outside our spaces and unacceptable behavior that took place at any point in time. The abuse team reserves the right to exclude people from San Diego JS based on their past behavior, including behavior outside San Diego JS spaces and behavior towards people who are not in San Diego JS.
In order to protect volunteers from abuse and burnout, we reserve the right to reject any report we believe to have been made in bad faith. Reports intended to silence legitimate criticism may be deleted without response.
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 San Diego JS members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.
Participants asked to stop any unacceptable behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in unacceptable behavior, San Diego JS organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all San Diego JS spaces and identification of the participant as a harasser to other San Diego JS members or the general public.
