Childwatch Committee Application
Thank you for your interest in providing childwatch for our comrades in Boston DSA! We are establishing a group of volunteers to provide childwatch at Boston DSA general meetings, working group meetings, sponsored events, and other occasions as the need arises. This will help us in our goal of making Boston DSA a more welcoming, inclusive organization for activists of all ages.

Providing any form of child watch raises safety concerns for our organization. While addressing the safety and security of children at meetings is of utmost importance, many standard ways of addressing those safety issues, such as background checks, involve directly interacting with the carceral state. Therefore, we need to create our own system of community vetting that (1) allows parents and caregivers to feel confident about their child’s safety and positive experience, (2) holds child watch volunteers accountable, and (3) does so with no interactions with the carceral state.

This application will be provided to a vetting committee for the purposes of community accountability and establishing a childwatch system that families and child watchers feel is supportive, responsive, and responsible.

For your reference, we prefer you use another Boston DSA member as your reference, but if that's not possible please email bdsa-childwatch@googlegroups.com after submitting your application with some additional background.
