Blue Stars Statement On Organizational Safety
Apr 7, 2018 8:10 AM

The recent events involving the former director of the Cadets have caused all of us in the drum corps activity to pause and reflect on our own organizations and the protections we have in place to safeguard our people. The well-being of the members, volunteers, and staff of the Blue Stars is our most important job – and it's one we take very seriously.

No person involved with the Blue Stars - or any organization - should be subjected to sexual, physical, or mental abuse or harassment. We have policies in place to define the conduct and expectations of everyone involved in the Blue Stars. All staff and volunteers are part of a mandatory background check program. Training and education sessions on prevention and recognition of abuse and harassment are scheduled for staff and members at upcoming rehearsals. And we have reporting procedures in place up to and including law enforcement resources if necessary. Any allegations of abuse, harassment, or criminal misconduct are dealt with swiftly and appropriately.

Our hearts break for the victims of abuse and we stand alongside all who condemn this abhorrent behavior. We also have great sympathy for the people damaged collaterally by these actions. We stand ready to assist the current staff and members of the Cadets as they work to make the 2018 season an amazing experience for all involved.

Kevin Hanson - Chairperson
Bruce Furlano - Vice-Chairperson
Timothy Kviz - Treasurer
Jennifer Wagner - Secretary
Charles Cullen
John Donahue

Bradley Furlano - CEO
