Noisebridge’s purpose is to promote and encourage technical, scientific, and artistic skills through individual projects, social collaboration, and education; primarily in the physical space it maintains, but also in and through online forums, chat servers, and mailing lists.
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, religion, housing status, or language. We do not tolerate harassment of people at our events or space in any form.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments, jokes, gestures and stereotyping 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, non-consensual photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, persistent uninvited communication, hate speech, trolling, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Harassment can also take the form of physically blocking an individual from freely moving about or leaving the space as well as micro aggressions, for example: casual racism or sexism, bullying and use of intimidation to create a hostile environment.

People asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

People violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the space or the event at the discretion of any Noisebridge community participant.

Reporting Issues[edit]

Issues can be reported at and will be sent to community moderators for review. The issue can be reported anonymously, however it is unlikely anything can be done if no contact info is provided. Please at least give us a way to reach you, even if it is anonymous. 

Also bear in mind that this is not for issues where you feel you are in immediate danger. In those instances, find a known Member to assist you, or remove yourself from the space before reporting the issue.
