The OSGeo Board of Directors issues this statement in response to recent 
events in the tech and global communities in relation to issues of 
inclusion, equity, and justice:

OSGeo strives to be an open, welcoming, and safe community and, to that 
end, we continue to work to improve how we treat all members of our 
community.  We believe our community is built on the collective of all 
of our actions and that each individual has an impact on whether people 
feel welcome.

OSGeo values the contributions of each and every member in all aspects 
of the organization, including (but not limited to) using and promoting 
open source geospatial software, contributing code, documentation, event 
speakers, participating in joint events with other organizations, or 
within  various committees.

All participants, regardless of how or where they participate in OSGeo 
activities, are expected to behave with integrity and respect for all 
people.  We encourage all members to review the Code of Conduct, make 
necessary adjustments to their behaviors as needed, and to discuss the 
Code of Conduct within committees and projects.
