Occupy Boston Passes New Resolution Against Sexual Misconduct

The following proposal was passed by Occupy Boston’s General Assembly on Sunday, January 8:

Occupy Boston will not tolerate verbal or emotional or physical threats or acts of sexual violence or sexual harassment against any individual, regardless of gender identity, gender, sex, age, class, race, sexual orientation, or ability.

From now on Occupy Boston will immediately respond to threats and acts of sexual violence.

To ensure the safety of all members of Occupy Boston, interested workings groups will create a working protocol as soon as possible but no longer than within 1 month for how to prevent and immediately respond to these acts.
