​Hi Al!  Yes, in fact the organization did post about that situation and
the ensuing fallout. I think the post is very clear!

Ada Initiative's work includes running several unconferences for women in
open tech & culture over the last three years including AdaCamps in SF, DC,
Portland, Berlin, and Bangalore. Hundreds of conferences and events have
adopted anti-harassment policies based on their template.

Here is a list of more of their work: http://adainitiative.org/what-we-do/

Glad to see you're a champion of sex positivity! Me too!  I have a long
history of radical sex positive activism. AND am an advisor for AI.
