That the Sexual Assault and Harassment Policy, as revised, be lifted from the table. CARRIED #62-11-92
Text
That this National Executive Council adopt the following policy on Sexual Assault and Harassment:
We affirm that every human being is created in the image of God who has made us for loving, covenantal relationships with our Creator, others and the world. We believe that our peace arises out of right relationships. Our personal dignity, freedom and bodily integrity are ensured by faithfulness to just covenants of mutual entrustment care and respect. Such covenants undergird the moral framework of our communal life, responsibilities and entitlements.
We further acknowledge that children, adolescents, the infirm and elderly are particularly vulnerable to the tragic consequences of broken covenants and abusive treatment. Special care must be taken to protect their individual rights and personal integrity.
"There is universal agreement that respect, reverence and mutuality are necessary in all human relationships. This agreement about the fundamentals of human relations, including sexual relations, leads to a firm judgement and condemnation of sexual abuse and exploitation...
... Sexual abuse is self-gratification by exploitation. It makes an impersonal object of the other person, abusing both the person and sexuality itself. Abuse occurs in a wide range of sexual activities: always in rape and child molestation, usually in adultery and prostitution and sometimes even in marriage. Sexual abuse also occurs in the socially subtle aspects of sexism and in sexual harassment of employees in the workplace. The Church must be clear about these violations of sexual intimacy. It must be explicit in its teaching about these particular aberrations of sexual relations, aggressively proactive about its social policy and action touching on these areas, and forthright in dealing with violations in its own community." (Lambeth Conference Report, 1988)
The National Office of the Anglican Church of Canada undertakes to ensure that all activities, work and pronouncements with which it is engaged uphold the values of love, truth and justice and are demonstrably free from violence, coercion, and discrimination because of gender.
"It is our policy that sexual assault, sexual harassment, or sexual abuse of any kind, whether to adult, adolescent or child, male or female, by or to any staff person, contract employee or volunteer, will not be tolerated."
We will actively try to prevent such occurrences and deal with any accusations promptly, seriously and systematically, where appropriate, in co-operation with proper authorities.
Particularly in relationships of trust where power, authority and confidentiality are a dynamic, the greatest of care will be expected to be exercised to avoid taking advantage of trust, or abusing power and the responsibility of authority.
At all times an ethic of mutual respect, responsibility and caring, as well as modelling wholeness and healthy sexuality in relationships, will be the goal. We will practice, advocate and educate to that end.
Because national staff and volunteers work and deal with people in and from a variety of ecclesiastical and civil jurisdictions, both within and outside of Canada, attention will be paid to the needs of differing situations, where possible. CARRIED #63-11-92
