The East Bay Democratic Socialists of America (EBDSA) Local Council (LC) is aware that you have
allegedly engaged in a pattern of unacceptable conduct on social media that violates the principles and
policies of the organization.
This pattern of alleged unacceptable conduct has taken place over the course of several months
including but not limited to, October 2017-December 2017. This pattern of alleged unacceptable
conduct has taken place after you acknowledged and agreed to cease such behavior during a phone

The online conduct includes, but is not limited to, allegedly reporting misinformation about EBDSA and
personal attacks that target individual members or groups of members. Examples of such social media
posts are attached in appendix below.

and guided by the EBDSA Members Facebook Group Policy 09/18/2017, as well as the (non-binding)
national grievance policy, Resolution 33, the EBDSA Local Council is writing to you inform you of these
allegations and to give you the opportunity to respond.
If you choose to refute these allegations, then you should include in your response any explanation
and/or evidence that you feel is helpful.
