Harassment

The Utah Democratic Party (UDP) is committed to fostering and creating space for full participation for its members and does not tolerate harassment. We are continuously developing better processes and policies and are always looking to improve. Our Anti-Harassment Policy was recently amended and adopted at the 2018 Q4 State Central Committee, held in Central Region (SLCo) on Wednesday, December 19, 2018, and is available at this link.

2018 Harassment Task Force Recommendations can be viewed at this link.

We have also begun the process on the creation for the 2019 Harassment Task Force Select Committee of the Utah Democratic Party, which will work on suggested revisions to our most current Anti-Harassment Policies & Procedures, best practices / statement of values, and recommendations for an updated Code of Conduct. Task force is to be made up of at least 50% representation beyond Salt Lake County.

Applications will be open from Tuesday, January 1 through Friday, January 18, 2019. To apply, please fill out this form. Selected applicants will be contacted Monday, January 21, 2019.

We continue seeking Public Input. Please follow this link to provide us with suggestions on improvements to our Anti-Harassment Policy. Our current governing documents can be viewed at this link. 

On January 3, 2019, UDP Chair Daisy Thomas and Mariel Reimann will host an open to the public meeting a 7PM Sexual Harassment Training facilitated by Utah Department of Labor, to continue actively creating a harassment-free culture. This training is open to the public; however, RSVP is required due to space capacity. Please register at this link.

Please be on the lookout for future trainings and more by checking out our upcoming events page, subscribing to our emails, or following us on Twitter and Facebook

Please also note that if you have experienced harassment at any UDP sanctioned events or from party leadership, and are ready to come forward there are resources available that are linked below, as well as a commitment from UDP Chair Thomas to ensure a timely investigation.
