Noisebridge's Anti-Harassment Policy

On September 24th, 2013, Noisebridge adopted an anti-harassment policy. The policy has a trial period that expires on January 21st, 2014. To participate in the conversation to improve the policy see Anti-Harassment Policy Mutable Markdown.

Noisebridge is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of people at our events or space in any form, including in the form of person-to-person bullying.

Sexual language, imagery, and direct references thereof should be only be used for positive purposes in accordance with best practices advocated by professional sex educators (if you’re not sure what those are, don’t do it).

Harassment and bullying include offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, veiled physical threats of any sort, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

People asked to stop harassing behavior exhibited anywhere in the space are expected to comply at once.

People caught violating the rules set herein subject themselves to be immediately sanctioned or expelled from the space at the discretion of any Regular or Associate member of Noisebridge.

If you wish to report harassment anonymously or privately, you can send a message to secretary@noisebridge.net
