Proposal Type: Other Public
Opened: 18-Jul-2020 12:00AM EDT
Closing: 25-Jul-2020 12:00AM EDT
As the Head Coordinator, I, Danielle Frink, propose that the phrases "grandfathering" and "redline/redlining" be removed from our bylaws and replaced by "legacy exemptions" and "retcon/retconning." As players, Coordinators, Storytellers and Council Members, we want to create an inclusive environment that makes everyone feel respected. Making changes to the language we use is a simple, but important, step in creating that environment.
For a brief explanation of why these phrases are cause for concern and should be changed, check out these links.
As this topic has been brought to my attention repeatedly, and discussed among the Coordinators and on public Facebook groups, we need to address the situation. It is a small thing to change, and though it will take us some time to adjust, it is an important step to making our organization more inclusive.
