This means creating an environment where people who are typically excluded from or marginalized in game-related or academic spaces feel welcome and respected. We encourage all participants to work together to prevent or reduce harm, particularly for those who are often the targets of violence and harassment, and ensure that marginalized individuals are not being pushed out of the space.
If you feel that someone is making the space unsafe for you, if you notice that someone else is being made to feel unsafe, or if you have any other concerns, please contact an organizer. Organizers and volunteers will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise help you to feel safe for the duration of the events. We value your attendance.
Participants whose behaviour is making others around them feel unsafe will be asked to cease the offending behaviour and will be expected to comply or leave the space immediately.
