We recognize that all AFW2 A4L members come to this social community with different desires, intentions, perspectives, and abilities. Our goal in providing these expectations is to establish standards that we believe will assist in the healing, encouraging, supporting and respect of those individuals within the closed Facebook page.
The rules have been created to benefit the program and increase its effectiveness. There are also rules, regulations, guidelines and instructions that may be applicable to participate in AFW2 A4L sponsored activities (i.e., training, support groups, events). They will be provided to you at the appropriate times. We expect that participants will make every effort to abide by the rules while interacting within the Facebook Page or while participating in activities. In the event you feel unable to comply with these rules or regulation, please let one of the Program Managers/Facebook Page Administrators (see method of contact below) know of your concern so we can resolve it.
On this platform, it is important that the participants are treated with courtesy, politeness and kindness at all times. These words mean different things to different people; however we expect you to respect other participant’s beliefs and boundaries, both physical (during AFW2 A4L activities) and emotional. Criticism, ridicule, harassment, and humiliation are not effective ways to heal, encourage, support or be respectful of others. Therefore, we expect you to think before speaking and attempt to resolve any emotional distress that you may intentionally or accidentally cause. This is for the purpose of ensuring that all participants feel valued and can share their experiences without fear of being criticized.
Sexual, racial or similarly offensive slurs, language or jokes will not be tolerated. We expect you to refrain from using abusive speech, spreading rumors, or intimidating anyone. For this platform to be most effective, the participants must treat others as they would like to be treated and to be sensitive to the feelings of others.
Very personal experiences and opinions will be discussed on this platform or during group activities. We want to encourage the free flow of communication without fear that a participant’s personal information would be made public. We expect that you will respect the privacy of other participants by keeping the information discussed private.
We greatly value, appreciate, and encourage your participation in AFW2 A4L Activities and may decide to use photographs, videotapes, motion pictures, or recordings of you obtained for publicity purposes. If you have a concern about this use, we expect you to communicate that concern to the Program Managers/Facebook Page Administrators: Ronald Johnson or Brandy Farias.
It is possible that personal or property damage may occur during an AFW2 A4L Activity. We expect you to respect people and property, however, if you do cause some damage, it is important that you understand that the United States Air Force does not automatically become legally or financially liable for that damage. You may become personally liable for that damage.
If your experience or witness unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please report it by contacting the Program Managers/Facebook administrators via Facebook Messenger or by emailing us at AFPC.DPFW.A4L@us.af.mil. All reports will be handled with discretion and confidentiality.
In your report please include:
Your contact info
Names (real, nicknames, or pseudonyms) of any individual involved
Your account of what occurred and any additional information that may be helpful
After filing a report, a representative will review the incident, follow up with any additional questions, and make a decision as to how to respond. We reserve the right to suspend or remove anyone from the Facebook Page/A4L Program for failure to adhere to “Expectation for Participation Agreement.”
We encourage everyone to participate and are committed to building a supportive, informative, inspiring, and fun community for all. The Participation Agreement is not exhaustive or complete. It serves to distill our common understanding of a collaborative, shared environment and goals. We expect it to be followed in spirit as much as in the letter.
