The 22nd DC Red Dress Run
Saturday, October 10, 2015
The Park at Fourteenth 920 14th St NW
We want to thank everyone who attended this year’s Red Dress Run for helping make this a very successful weekend. We had planned to take a few weeks off to recover and then check back in after the dust settles. Unfortunately, a very serious issue has come to light and we feel it necessary to address it with the entire hashing community at this time.
Multiple hashers have come forward and informed Red Dress and Full Moon Mismanagement that they believe they had been drugged. These separate incidents occurred both at BLT on Friday and during Red Dress Run on Saturday. Thankfully, all hashers that have come forward have reported that they are now safe and recovering, but that in no way diminishes the anger and disappointment everyone on Red Dress and Full Moon Mismanagement feels right now. We are devastated by this news and appreciate the bravery of the hashers that came forward to share their stories with us. We also want to thank the hashers that helped those affected get the care and help that they needed.
We want to emphasize that we are vehemently opposed to all predatory and malicious behavior. As Hashers, we come together to have fun in an atmosphere that not only is welcoming to all, but is also safe and secure. Anyone who drugs another person without their knowledge and consent is committing a crime. “Roofies” lead to sexual assault and kidnappings. Any Hasher found to use, provide, or possess any form of a date rape drug will be permanently banned from our hashes, and more importantly, will be reported to law enforcement. We have a ZERO tolerance policy on this.
We have strived over the years to make Red Dress and all of its surrounding Hashtivus events a safe and welcoming experience for all harriettes and harriers alike. We work hard to make sure our venues provide event security, and that we ourselves look out for our attendees. We ask for your help in stopping any events of this nature in the future.
We want to take this opportunity to remind all hashers of some the resources available to you in the unfortunate event something like this ever happens to you, or someone close to you. Date rape drugs are commonly known as Rohypnol (hence”roofie”), GHB, or Ketamine. These drugs often make users appear very drunk, so victims may think they’ve just had too much to drink and may not want to report that they’d been drugged. For more info on these drugs and their side-effects, please follow this link: http://www.medicinenet.com/date_rape_drugs/page2.htm
Lastly, people who prey on others rely on shame and secrecy. Please understand, being a victim carries no shame. By exposing this horrible behavior, we hope to expose those who would perpetrate it on others. We want to thank those who came forward to shine some light on this. If you have any further questions or concerns, we encourage you to reach out to us. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
