-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA256 The purpose of this letter is to acknowledge that Noisebridge is aware of several claims of sexual misconduct and manipulation by Jacob Appelbaum. What we can say for sure is that Jacob's behavior, as alleged, along with many incidents we regrettably overlooked in the past now would trigger the Noisebridge Anti-Harassment Policy. We did not have a culture or structure for people to bring forward claims - we do now. Because of this Jacob is no longer welcome in our community, either in its physical or online spaces. To our knowledge, no new claims of misconduct have been made against Jacob within Noisebridge Hackerspace in San Francisco, California. Jacob was involved at the beginning of Noisebridge but has not been physically present, nor a Member of Noisebridge for many years. While Jacob's name is historically tied to our own we feel it very important to stress that hundreds of other volunteers have poured emotional and physical labour into the space and community. Noisebridge is bigger than any one person's contribution. The public claims of sexual misconduct made against Jacob Appelbaum are serious, above a level that can be addressed by mailing list alone. We echo the Cult of the Dead Cow's own statement about creating an environment where people feel safe to come forward. "It is also our responsibility to create an environment where people feel safe to come forward. We have always stood for freedom of speech and expression, which sometimes necessitates the right to anonymity" --cDc (Cult of the Dead Cow) If you wish to report harassment anonymously or privately, please send a message to email@example.com. Community members can bring any issues to #no-fly-list in slack, or discuss the situation with a Noisebridge member you trust who can raise the concern with the community. We also encourage members of the Tor community to report incidents in which they've been involved Contact info may be found on the Tor Project's recent Statements blog post. https://blog.torproject.org/blog/statement  - https://www.facebook.com/cultdeadcow/posts/10157076402890360  - https://noisebridge.net/wiki/Anti-harassment_policy -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2 iQIcBAEBCAAGBQJXWz8jAAoJEFfFec8qXSuDILkQAJ8z03FyfLZpwaQPRKPEGRyz pkdOeHm6BDEbxB4VLeSrzUgzI2EcTMuTuFbev6EyAbpP+qnAKCjQU71GpBkpBipF wEwmQfl1+/mLmkt2y8jdmpTndmvaaQ+hfNsp1H674vGWLx8GwVUwrdeDFUuqxk0m ueaGQI296ClNgUIVeqx+gIIkZqyluilnZqLJnWosrIz9kRl3GhhL+yeP8bLCa+t8 SHyktvjwJ6QKGE9GkoHuM7j1ehSZ8irWZcTHnmUyxeRj6UN182Uj6RUFTAY3syH+ TxuO5Sprntxs4GPwXIBDgVq/QBXIGwXdfaqlNbynAevTwh1yv/li+wHpAzdj9pKb ID4O5wxSFsDN+3vZweZXQQYOVnXvFrszqKu/5OGZY7vlKQdd0hykdyZGka+o0/qc fMM3U8bFANYuqmWoqdWwUGvxeJm4SAqGz0MQxvOVNTMPLkup9Ue6qYX8nqrO18VL f5Pf7Asfun1eVAL3JVCjrf6g7hK6ie4Xc548a3e4qeNQEd2Eby7CwR2ouE8Ive4L 4I1cVJQjYnKsbR4Pe4aXOBgHQSGqYsEzrrvqvKS4X3C2llhwNi0w23dANgvyWDZD fGbBRitNOZFPqHTecDcxnxlHXYdLsa+CSv0/dILHrIz5sBA4awtod1RQird6ECRO UHLkaQIznrLHzZ/2COJa =K5/5 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
