As a cooperative, social.coop is based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity. Our members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility, and caring for others. We also follow the rest of the ICA co-op principles.
We welcome anyone able to use our services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, regardless of qualities such as gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, mental illness, neuro(a)typicality, physical appearance, body size, age, race, nationality, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, family structure, spirituality, religion (or lack thereof), education, or other personal traits. We particularly celebrate diversity and do not tolerate bigotry or prejudice. Diverse opinions on politics, religion, and other matters are welcome as long as they align with our core values. Let there be no confusion, Social.Coop is anti-racist, anti-fascist, and anti-transphobic.
We expect all social.coop community participants to abide by this Code of Conduct in all community venues and in any other context pertaining to community business, including in-person events.
This code of conduct and its related procedures also applies to unacceptable behaviour by Social.Coop members occurring outside the scope of community activities.
We expect users on other instances to respect our members and treat them according to our Code of Conduct. We will defend our users and protect them from abuse. See the Federation Abuse Policy
