Zero Tolerance Policy


We understand that individuals may experience frustration when matters they feel strongly about are not addressed as desired. However, if that frustration escalates into aggression or inappropriate behavior towards our staff, we consider it unacceptable.

𝗔𝗻𝘆 𝗮𝗴𝗴𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗿 𝗮𝗯𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝗱𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗼𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗱𝘀 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗳𝗳 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗯𝗲 𝘁𝗼𝗹𝗲𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗱.

Aggressive, abusive, slanderous, or defaming behavior includes language (whether verbal or written) that may cause staff to feel afraid, threatened, defamed, slandered, or abused. This behavior may include, but is not limited to, threats, personal verbal abuse, defamation of character, derogatory remarks, inflammatory statements, racism, discrimination, and unsubstantiated allegations, as well as a rude or hostile tone and/or actions. Additionally, the use of defaming, name-calling, accusations, and swear words in written or verbal communication will not be tolerated. Such behaviors are considered abusive and will not be tolerated. Communications displaying these behaviors will not receive a response and will be removed from our online profiles or event or office locations if in-person.

We always encourage our citizens to be mindful of the Seven Sacred Teachings in their lives, which include love, respect, honesty, courage/bravery, truth, wisdom, and humility. These teachings serve as guiding principles, reminding us to live our lives with respect towards each other and every living thing.
