Having trouble with someone in the chapter?

Here’s how we can help:

We think addressing concerns about harassment, abuse, and unhealthy situations is one of the most important things we do as a chapter. We have a detailed Code of Conduct.

You can file a grievance by reaching out to DSA SF’s Grievance Officers, two members elected to handle harassment and abusive behavior. Our bylaws outline a concrete process that’s triggered as soon as you reach out to the Grievance Officers:

  • You’ll be contacted acknowledging receipt of the complaint.
  • The Grievance Officers will reach out to the accused member within seven days asking for a response to the accusations.
  • The Grievance Officers will decide collectively on an action to take, including possibly expulsion or suspension, and make that recommendation to the Steering Committee.
  • The Steering Committee will vote on whether to take that action.

You can reach out to the Grievance Officers and begin this process by emailing grievance@dsasf.org.

For all chapter accessibility requests, please email steering@dsasf.org.
