Van Bramer to Block Non Profits From Getting City Funds if They Have History of Sexual Harassment Complaints

Jimmy Van Bramer

Dec. 7, 2017 By Christian Murray

Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer plans to introduce legislation early next year that would stop non-profit organizations from receiving city funds if they have been subject to multiple sexual harassment complaints.

“The #MeToo movement is about exposing systematic workplace sexual harassment and assault, but it’s up to lawmakers now to push forward solutions to address it,” Van Bramer said in a statement.

“That’s why I proposed legislation to put our money where our mouth is and require organizations seeking city subsidies to submit their records on sexual harassment complaints as a condition of funding.”

Van Bramer is currently working on drafting the bill and is expected to introduce it early next year.

The proposed legislation includes two main provisions.

The bill would require organizations to disclose the number of sexual harassment complaints they have had, as well as how they were resolved and what disciplinary actions were taken.

Furthermore, the non-profits would also have to disclose what type of education and training they provide to ensure that their staff understand the rules and regulations as they pertain to harassment and a safe work environment.

The city would prohibit any organization that has had multiple complaints from receiving public funds for a minimum of 5 years.

Unlike the troll commenters on here, I don’t think pedophiles should be eligible for government grants. If it were up to me, rapists and attackers wouldn’t even be allowed to run for office, much less be elected. But that’s my point of view.

I am surly against people using their power and taking advantage of one sexually.
What about about New YorkMedicaid paying for some abortion…I would like to see that also be un funded…

It seems to me the liberty to have an abortion would be something the Tree of Liberty would support.

Is any evidence required to back up these complaints or can anyone simply make unsubstantiated accusations and ruin people’s lives and businesses just on their say so?
