This short message is to establish that we are unwilling to tolerate any sexism, harassment or racism in our community. If you witness the abovementioned at any of the CCC gatherings, please speak out, back up anyone who has been the target of such behaviour, and encourage your peers to do the same. Please also know that the organizers of any CCC event will support you in doing so.

Sexism and racism contradict the preamble of the statutes of the CCC [1] and a public statement of the CCC issued 2005 [2]. The Chaos Computer Club and the organizers of the Chaos Communication Congress take harassment seriously. The Chaos Communication Congress will adopt an anti-harassment policy and respond to such behavior more quickly and firmly in the future.
