Inclusion Policies

We follow the East Kingdom’s inclusion policy, as stated in EK Law:

The East Kingdom is committed to celebrating equity, diversity, and inclusiveness. All officers and representatives of the Kingdom and its branches will promote social equality and diversity in all activities for all subjects of and visitors to the East Kingdom. Such officers and representatives will work to ensure that there is neither discrimination nor advancement on the basis of race, ethnicity, culture, age, health, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, national origin, veteran status, socio-economic class, religion, and/or professional status.

We also follow the SCA anti-harassment policy, as stated in the Society-wide seneschal’s handbook:

THE SCA PROHIBITS HARASSMENT AND BULLYING OF ALL INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS.

Participants engaging in this behavior are subject to appropriate sanctions.

If you are subjected to harassment, bullying or retaliation, or if you become aware of anyone being harassed or bullied, contact a seneschal, President of the SCA, or your Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman.

Note that you can always contact our local seneschal at seneschal@ostgardr.eastkingdom.org.
