Code of Conduct
Building community means asking what can we do together.
What does it mean to be apart of the Strong Asian Lead community?
Here are 11 basic codes of conduct in our spaces and outside our spaces. (June 2022)
Anyone violating the code of conduct will be asked to leave.
If you experience an unpleasant or uncomfortable encounter with a guest who attends our event, it is your responsibility to report it to Masami, or any one of our volunteer staff.
It is preferred to have a witness or second opinion confirm these actions, but is not a requirment.
This person in question will be confronted by Masami or Staff and spoken to firmly. This will be their first discussion and warning. We believe in second chances if there was a misunderstanding or moment of poor judgment. This is your first “CALL IN”
If that person returns to another event and more people have the same or similar issue with this person, our attendees will be publicly notified of this person and that person will be confronted again and asked to leave and will not be invited back.
We call them out publicly because we believe in holding people accountable for their actions and it is the responsibility of the community to keep each other safe.
By working together, we can keep our spaces safe and continue our public events. If we as a community decide not to hold people accountable and keep our spaces safe, then Strong Asian Lead will no longer create in-person events and it will become an exclusive invite-only arrangement. We don’t want to do that, but that’s what it will become if we as a community cannot keep our spaces safe and inclusive.
All guests should be prepared to show proof of COVID vaccination on-site. Masks are not required, however, current LA County guidelines strongly recommend that guests wear masks, especially for those at high risk of severe illness.
If you or anyone in your household are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, we ask you to please stay home to ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff.
If after attending our event, and you contract Covid, we ask that you please contact our staff or admin to notify us so that we can notify other attendees to get tested.
