-(Redacted) Ban Lauren ​Sheftall ​(formerly Lauren ​King) and Steven ​Sheftall ​from the property and any social media run by the co-op.+(Redacted) Ban Lauren ​(formerly Lauren ​K) and Steven ​from the property and any social media run by the co-op.
  
-Point of Information:​ Lauren used to live here and when she was recently here dropping a member off she was invited to our party this weekend. Lauren has become involved with a local neo-nazi group Patriot Front formerly known as American Vanguard and her presence here makes myself and other members uncomfortable. And just to reiterate, a ban does not prevent someone from coming to an individual'​s unit, just from hanging around common areas. +[redacted]
- +
-Point of Information:​ This is not about political beliefs, but is about someone being a part of a group that facilitates violence, and she has personally expressed these ideals. It is not an actual political party or group, just politically associated. +
- +
-Concern: Has Lauren committed an act of violence that we know of? I think part of this concern is not grounded in reality. +
- +
-Point of Information:​ No. +
- +
-Concern: I'm not a defender of nazis or facists, but where do we draw the line between someone who is dangerous versus just distasteful?​ As far as banning her it just seems like a lightning rod and I don't know if I want to fight that battle, personally. On the other hand I don't want any of our members to be in danger, but I think banning someone based on affiliations can be questionable. +
- +
-Point of Information:​ If this person were a member, she would be up for review pretty fast and there would be a reasonable likelihood of her being evicted over these actions. +
- +
-Point of Info: I think it's a completely reasonable request for our members to enjoy this party. She doesn'​t even come around here usually and our members have the right to peacefully enjoy this party. +
- +
-Point of Info: It's important to make a distinction between distasteful views, and actually being a member of a group that actively attacks and even kills people who are opposed to them. What we are doing by banning her is how society purges this kind of sh*t, so I am in favor of banning her. +
- +
-Point of Info: If it wasn't for the fact that she was over here and had been invited to an upcoming event, I wouldn'​t have even brought this up, but her presence would make me unable to attend. +
- +
-Point of Info: Far be it from me to approve of violence, but this is the coop's birthday party, she was a member of the coop, and I don't know for certain if she involved in this organization. I will stand up for people who want to oppose these types of values, but I don't know that this situation is really fair because I don't know all the information.+
