Your grievance will be heard and held with compassion and respect by the working group.
This process is based on your consent. You may share as much or as little as you feel comfortable. You will not be required to disclose any information.
This is your process. You are the expert on how you were impacted by this incident and the person who knows best what you need to begin healing. Your needs and healing are the priority for the working group.
You will have the opportunity to recuse any working group members from handling your grievance. This can be for any reason you will never be expected to disclose why unless you want to.
All of the following questions are optional. You may share as much or as little as you would like. Having more information is useful to the committee in addressing your grievance, and we respect that people who have experienced wounding may choose not to share details for many reasons.
Confidentiality and privacy of Friends engaging this process will be respected. If any information is to be shared publicly or with any party collaborating in remediation it will be only at the explicit request of the Friend bringing this grievance. The Addressing Racial Wounding Committee will keep a generic record of all incidents of racial wounding for the accountability and transparency of the organization. This generic record will include: when the incident was reported, type of incident, if/when/how it was addressed, and when and for how long the committee met.
