Non-Discrimination Policy


Non Discrimination Policy

The Junior Roller Derby Association (JRDA) does not and will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, citizenship, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, membership eligibility, disbursement of resources, and eligibility for office. JRDA is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all players, officials, volunteers, fans, and spectators.

 

JRDA does not and will not differentiate between members who identify as female, male, and non-binary / gender diverse (including but not limited to genderqueer, gender fluid, transmasculine, transfeminine, and agender) and JRDA does not and will not set minimum standards of masculinity or femininity for its membership beyond self-identification for divisional play.  JRDA does not interfere with the privacy of its players.  A player's self-identification and comfort are the only criteria for the purposes of charter eligibility.

 

In the event a JRDA member allegedly violates the Non-Discrimination Policy, notice must be given to the JRDA with details of the complaint. JRDA will investigate and take appropriate actions.

 

(JRDA is indebted to the Men's Roller Derby Association for their collaboration on the original version of this policy.)
