2017- Safer Spaces
Presenters: Caroline Leitschuh, John Graner, Suzanne Julian, and Tiffany Breindel
"While many scenes have anti-harassment or safer-spaces policies, few scenes have any kind of explicit process that can guide them in making difficult decisions when the policy is violated. Last year, we created a set of robust guidelines for responding to concerns of violence and harassment, and launched an ongoing subcommittee that will concentrate on making our scene as safe as possible. We hope that by sharing what we have created and why, we will help other communities to do the same."
