Information on
Guideline M.5. Part B:
Addressing Sexual Misconduct

for the RC Communities

Within the RC Community, we are committed to creating and maintaining an environment free of sexual misconduct and harassment. In August 2022, the RC Communities adopted a Guideline to explicitly address sexual misconduct and harassment.  

If you have a concern about sexual misconduct in the RC Communities, please contact an RC teacher, an Area Reference Person, a Regional Reference Person, an International Commonality Reference Person, an International Liberation Reference Person, or contact the Complaint Review Committee directly at We will immediately begin to address your concerns.

The RC Communities have been training Reference Persons in this Guideline and have recently begun training teachers.  Below are some resources that will be useful to all RCers in understanding and applying this Guideline. (updated 4.26.23)
