October 27 Local Council Statement

October 28, 2017 00:09

On the night of September 14, 2017, at an East Bay DSA event, an East Bay DSA member shoved another member in the context of a political argument. East Bay DSA undertook an official investigation according to our policy. Following due process, the Local Council informed the member of the charge and requested their statement. The member did not dispute the charge.

Having considered the statement, the Local Council has determined that the member's behavior was in substantial disagreement with the principles and policies of East Bay DSA. The member has been suspended from all official East Bay DSA activities, including but not limited to open meetings, social events, committee or subcommittee meetings, and official East Bay DSA online forums for a period of three months effective immediately.
