Safer Spaces Policy for Volunteers

 

All identities welcome here.

We all work together to create safer spaces.

Bigotry will not be tolerated. 

 

As Open Streets Volunteers, we need your help to keep events safe and respectful:

  • Alcohol and drug consumption is not allowed during your shift.

  • We do not tolerate harassment or hate speech.  If you encounter harassment or hate speech, please report this to us immediately.

  • Any unwelcome sexual advances, homophobic/transphobic/xenophobic/racist/sexist/abilist (etc.) “jokes," lack of respect for gender pronouns, negative comments on someone’s ability, or excluding people based on their identity or culture will be called out and volunteers behaving this way may be asked to leave.

  • We have your back. Together we can cultivate safer spaces that support and welcome all identities, meaning all genders, races, religions, abilities, orientations, etc.

  • We make safer spaces by being brave enough to enter these spaces, being vulnerable enough to make mistakes and learn, and by calling out and responding to oppressive behavior. 

We need your help to create a safe and respectful environment at Open Streets. Together, we can cultivate safer spaces that support and welcome all identities, meaning all genders, races, religions, abilities, orientations, etc. 

Thanks for helping to make each event the amazing,

inclusive community building event that it is!
