MCCL POLICY ON VIOLENCE

MCCL unequivocally condemns unlawful activities and acts of violence or harassment. Such actions are fundamentally contrary to our mission and our principles. MCCL works peacefully and legally through education, legislation, and political action. We seek to secure the right to life of all human beings and to protect them from the violence of abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia.

 

To underscore this long-standing policy, the MCCL Board of Directors adopted the following by-law on Oct. 18, 1987:

 

 

ARTICLE XIV

CONDUCT OF PERSONNEL

 

No officer, board member, or employee of this corporation shall engage in or promote activities which are intended to, or likely to result in:

 

(a) violation of a court order;

(b) the arrest of said person;

(c) the citation of said person for the violation of criminal law or ordinances of the relevant jurisdiction.

 

Persons deemed in violation of this by-law by a majority of the officers shall be asked by the chief executive officer to submit a formal letter of resignation. Failure to submit a resignation within ten (10) days shall result in automatic termination. The chief executive officer shall inform the full Board of Directors of action taken under this by-law.

 

Terminations and removals of persons under this provision shall be considered as automatic actions by the Board of Directors pursuant to the provisions of Article V, Section 10, Article VI, section 3 and Article VII section 3, of these by-laws.

 

Appeals by terminated parties, if requested in writing, will be heard by the full Board of Directors at the next scheduled meeting or at a special meeting called for that purpose.
