REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS POLICY
We recognize that domestic violence transcends the cultural divides of race, ethnicity, class, sexual and gender identity, religious affiliation, age, immigration status, and ability. We strive to be sensitive to and have a deeper understanding of the culturally specific ways victims of domestic violence may experience abuse
In pursuit of that goal, The Crisis Center North will work to create and maintain a diverse and inclusive organization that respects and values differences, celebrates diversity, and creates an environment where all staff, board members, and clients are welcome and valued.
The Board of the Crisis Center North includes a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee. Its focus is supporting diversity, promoting inclusion, and working toward greater equity to bring about meaningful and lasting change. If you have questions or educational opportunities you would like to share with our board’s DEI committee, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

COMPLIANCE WITH TITLE IX
Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 states that, “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. Title IX’s sex discrimination prohibition extends to claims of discrimination based on gender identity or failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity.
The Board and Management Staff of CCN strongly disapprove of any form of sexual harassment in the workplace or during off-site presentations, including the acts of non-CCN employees. All CCN staff and volunteers have an affirmative responsibility to discourage and eliminate conduct inconsistent with this policy. Specific concerns or complaints regarding sexual harassment should be brought to the attention of the Title IX Coordinator, CCN’s Executive Director. Procedures for resolving sexual discrimination or harassment complaints are cited below. All complaints will be investigated thoroughly and disciplinary action will promptly be taken against any employee, volunteer, or other party, found to have engaged in unlawful sexual discrimination or harassment.
Notification of Title IX protections will be published in CCN’s newsletter and distributed to participants and employees by letter or memo, as well as being prominently posted at the CCN office. All other publications, such as brochures and newsletters will contain similar notices. CCN will notify the public by publishing our nondiscrimination policy on our website, Facebook pages and any other documents and publications that are distributed to the public. The notification will be widely disseminated on a regular basis and easily understood.
Non-Retaliation, Intimidation and Coercion
Retaliation by, for, or against any participant (complainant, respondent, or witness) is expressly prohibited. CCN also prohibits any kind of retaliatory acts against individuals seeking redress under these applicable procedures or serving as a witness in a subsequent investigation dealing with sexual harassment or gender discrimination. Such retaliatory conduct will be subject to disciplinary action by CCN. Any person who thinks he / she has been the victim of retaliation should contact the Title IX Coordinator immediately.
