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.

Harassment Policy

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.
