Why is it Important to Conduct Screenings and Who Should be Requesting Them? 

Screenings are an easy step in keeping our temples a safe place and ensuring we don't place abusers in positions of worship and authority such as giving class, deity worship, management, leading kirtans etc.   Screening also ensures that abusers will not have access to children, or welcomed to live in an ashram on ISKCON property etc. Often times abusers will pass from temple to temple, fulfilling different positions or different services, getting support, and repeat offending if they have access to children. This can be avoided if temples and organizers require CPO clearance on devotees they will be engaging in service. 

If you are a temple president, organizer (kids tent, festival planner, kirtan scheduler, etc), gurukula principle, person of influence (GBC, social media presenter etc.) you should be screening who you allow to sing, move into the temple, give class, visit your school, host on your social media platform, join any managerial role etc. 

•PLEASE NOTE, IF YOU ARE IN NORTH AMERICA PLEASE GO HERE SafeTemple.org/Management  and follow the prompts for screening.
