paraphrased shorter version:
SCA Core Values
In pursuing its mission, the SCA is committed to excellence in its programs, communications and activities and to
∙ act in accordance with the chivalric virtues of honor and service;
∙ value and respect the worth and dignity of all individuals;
∙ practice inclusiveness and respect pluralism and diversity;
∙ promote a safe and respectful environment for all SCA events;
∙ act with transparency, fairness, integrity and honesty;
∙ be a responsible steward of SCA resources; and,
∙ be committed to maintaining the trust of its members and participants.
It is the expectation of the SCA that its members and participants, in all events and activities of the SCA, will conduct themselves in accordance with these tenets.
SCA prohibits harassment and bullying of all individuals and groups.
Harassment and bullying includes, but is not limited to the following:
∙ offensive or lewd verbal comments directed to an individual;
∙ the display of explicit images (drawn or photographic) depicting an individual in an inappropriate manner;
∙ photographing or recording individuals inappropriately to abuse or harass the individual;
∙ inappropriate physical contact; unwelcome sexual attention;
∙ or retaliation for reporting harassment and/or bullying.
Hate speech is not tolerated in the Society.
Hate speech is speech or symbols that offend, threaten, or insult individuals or groups, based on race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability or other traits. Such symbols and speech have no essential part of any discussion of ideas and are of so little value to the Society that any benefit that may be derived from them is clearly outweighed by the harm caused.
