TO OUR COMMUNITY:
Political Union would like to address statements made by an individual at the student debate on 4/12 on political correctness. Political Union’s board discussed these statements at length, and found them to be unacceptable violations of our anti-discrimination policy and norms for conduct at debates. These statements were provocative, made little attempt to start constructive discourse, and were explicitly racist and homophobic. Political Union acknowledges the harm they may have caused, and we have issued a formal warning to this individual that further reprehensible conduct will lead to a request that they no longer return to Political Union. We’d like to remind anyone at our events that our anonymous reporting form is always available, and automatically convenes a conversation from the executive board.
