Equity and Inclusion Statement
The Celtic Junction Arts Center (CJAC) strives to be an inclusive environment for all community members. CJAC does not tolerate harassment or discrimination on the basis of race, sex, gender expression or identity, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, age, ability, or class.
Any person engaged in harassment or discriminatory behavior may not hold any position of responsibility in the organization; these positions include, but are not limited to, teachers, Board members, and/or volunteers. Harassment and/or discriminatory behavior refers to both in-person and online interactions within or outside of CJAC events, including the sharing of disparaging misinformation and intolerant comments targeting marginalized groups.
Anyone who has experienced or observed harassment or discrimination by a person associated with CJAC should report such behavior to any member of CJAC’s Executive Committee (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer of the Board of Directors, or CJAC Executive Director) verbally or in writing. (See contact info in bios above). Those making a report will have their privacy protected. Anonymous reports will be accepted. Reports of harassment and/or discriminatory behavior will be investigated and are grounds for disciplinary action up to and including dismissal.
Child Protection Policy
The Celtic Junction Arts Center (CJAC) has a zero-tolerance policy for incidents of child abuse. We understand that protecting children is our most important responsibility and that our programs serve no positive purpose if we do not ensure their safety. In EVERY case, the report of molestation and any other abuse, or suspected such activity, will be treated with absolute priority, and CJAC will do everything in its power to ensure the successful prosecution of the perpetrator to the fullest extent of the law.
Everyone working with children at CJAC must agree to and sign this document.
