Safe Space Policy

The EBABZ Fest is a safe space, which means that it is intended to be a welcoming, engaging, and supportive environment free of oppressive actions, behaviors, and language. Participants and attendees are asked to consider how their language and behavior impact others in attendance. This policy extends to materials presented by EBABZ Fest tablers. We will not tolerate racism, sexism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and all other forms of discrimination, theft of money or property, or causing participants or attendees to feel distressed or unsafe. The following guidelines will help EBABZ Fest be a safe space: - Respect peoples' physical and emotional boundaries. (For example, ask before taking a photo, etc.) - Respect peoples' opinions, beliefs, differing states of being, and differing points of view. - Be responsible for your actions, and be aware that they may have an effect on others regardless of original intent. Should an issue arise with a participant or attendee before or during the fest, the EBABZ Fest staff will be available to hear these concerns and find a solution that is in the best interests of the community and the event being a safe space. The staff reserves the right to ask any attendees who are violating the safe space policy to address their unsafe behavior or language, or leave the event.
