Our goal is to gather enough information to be able to make fair and reasonable recommendations whether to allow someone or a group continued access to events or as a volunteer.
If a reporter provides information to the Conduct & Consent Committee (CCC) but does not want us to talk to the person or persons their report is about, we cannot make a recommendation to the Santa Cruz Burners LLC on that case. We will retain the information, and may contact the reporter in the future. When a case is being investigated we will do our best to maintain the anonymity of the reporter but cannot guarantee it.
The CCC tries to hear multiple perspectives about some complex situations, and our volunteers often have busy schedules just like the witnesses and others with whom they talk. It can take several months to have a sufficient number of conversations to provide an understanding of the situation behind some reports. If you are interacting with the CCC (as a reporter, subject of a report, or witness), you can help keep our process moving by responding to emails from investigators in a timely fashion, and you are welcome to check in with investigators yourself about report status.
