|In The Spotlight!|
(From the October 2013 edition of HopeSpeak)
Does the organization have a clergy sexual abuse policy in place? If yes, where can this policy be found (provide URL, mailing address if a copy must be requested, etc.)?
A link to the UUMA Ethical Standards section of the UUMA Code of Conduct which specifically states: I will not engage in sexual contact, sexualized behavior or a sexual relationship with any person I serve as a minister.
A link to the Ministerial Fellowship Committee’s rules and procedures is also provided in the related contents section.
How/where can victims or members of the congregation find out about the policy and proper procedures for reporting abuse? Is there a specific person or office to contact?
The direct link is http://www.uua.org/safe/misconduct/index.shtml.
Complaints go through the Intake person for the Office of Ethics and Safety, Heather Bond, who is listed on the Safe Congregation Page.
