DFL Mandates Sexual Harassment Training For All Campaigns Receiving Party Support

[ST. PAUL, MN] – Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party Chairman Ken Martin today announced that all campaigns receiving official party support from the Minnesota DFL Party will be required to attend a training on sexual harassment and workplace conduct.

“Sexual harassment is a pervasive problem that needs to be addressed,” DFL Chairman Ken Martin said. “Unfortunately no workplace is immune, including political campaigns. The Minnesota DFL Party has a zero tolerance policy for sexual harassment and expects our candidates and campaigns to follow this policy. The DFL will now require any campaign receiving official party support to attend a comprehensive training on sexual harassment. These trainings will be an important step toward setting clear expectations as to what constitutes professional workplace conduct, and deterring inappropriate behavior in the first place.”

Training will be mandatory for all candidates and campaign staff in order to gain access to the DFL voter file and other key services from the state party. The training will be conducted by a professional facilitator after the state’s June 5th filing deadline.
