Campaign Code of Conduct

Dear Volunteer,

Kate Bishop for Ferndale City Council (“the Campaign”) expects all volunteers and parties associated with the Campaign to respect the rights and opinions of others and to refrain from behavior that impairs our mission, purpose, or culture of empowerment in the workspace of our campaign.

The Campaign is committed to providing an environment conducive to progress, empowerment, and political leadership and maintaining a work environment that is free from any kind of harassment, bullying, intimidation, discrimination, or assault. Behavior inconsistent with this standard of conduct is unprofessional, inappropriate, and inconsistent with our cultural values and will be grounds for dismissal from the Campaign.

The Campaign expects all volunteers to treat one another and the public equitably, fairly, and with professionalism and respect at all times. The Campaign encourages its volunteers to report behavior that is unprofessional, inappropriate, unfair, or inequitable. Retaliation for reporting inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated. The Campaign is committed to ensuring that no volunteer or associated party experiences an adverse effect or consequence as the result of speaking up. Reports may be directed to Kate Bishop. Alternatively, reports may be made confidentially to Faline Jett (contact information will be provided.)

The Campaign encourages its volunteers and others to take action to make our community better. That means we all need to do our part to create an environment that is empowering, equitable, and enjoyable for all who wish to be a part of our campaign. This includes reporting misconduct and/or identifying inappropriate behavior as such when we observe it as bystanders.

All volunteers and associated parties will be treated fairly and equitably, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age, genetic information, disability, or veteran status.

By agreeing to volunteer for this campaign, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to abide by this code of conduct for the duration of your participation in the Campaign.

Thank you for your help and support.  We couldn’t do it without you!

Kate Bishop
