Safe Space Policy

for The Humane League Events

Inclusivity stands as one of The Humane League’s core values, as we actively strive to promote and recognize principles of fairness and equity in relation to race, age, color, disability, faith, religion, ancestry, national origin, citizenship, sex, sexual orientation, social class, economic class, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, and all other identities represented in our organization and worldwide.

We must all work together to create a space within The Humane League’s events that is safe and comfortable for all individuals. Related to this, we have developed the following guidelines to address inappropriate behavior at The Humane League’s events:

  • Inappropriate behavior that is prohibited may include—but is not limited to—sexual harassment or behavior that is racist, sizeist, sexist, transphobic, queerphobic, ableist, xenophobic, ageist, and homophobic. Inappropriate behavior also includes unwillingness to listen to and learn from others’ experiences.
  • If you feel that you have been subject to inappropriate behavior or discrimination, you should report the incident to the local grassroots director/coordinator/event planner. Someone else may also report on your behalf. There will be no retaliation against the person who reports the behavior.
  • If someone questions your behavior, the event coordinator will speak with you. You may be given a verbal warning and you may be asked to leave the event. If inappropriate behavior continues and/or is reported again, you may be prohibited from attending future The Humane League’s events.
