SAFE SPACE POLICY

By the act of registering for the Animal Rights National Conference each conference registrant agrees to act respectfully toward other attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and Conference officials and to abide by the Safe Space Policy on our conference website.

For Attendees

The Animal Rights National Conference strives to create a "safe space" environment, where all participants feel welcome. We do not tolerate behavior, language, and/or literature that is hurtful to other Conference participants, or to animals. This includes non-consensual physical contact as well as remarks putting down a person's race, ethnicity, age, size, appearance, gender, sexual expression or orientation, physical ability, or mental competence.

All violations should be reported for immediate resolution to any Conference official. Violators may be asked to leave the Conference, banned from future ones, or even arrested, if the gravity of offense warrants it.

For Speakers and Exhibitors

The Animal Rights National Conference is devoted to the vision that "animals have the right to be free from all forms of human exploitation." The Conference rejects advocacy of continued exploitation of animals under improved conditions, sometimes labeled as "humane" or "happy." All presentations must be consistent with this vision.

We welcome advocates of reduced consumption of animal products, provided that they don't deny the likelihood of a vegan end, advocate some animal products, or bash any vegan advocates.

We welcome constructive criticism of the management, priorities, strategies, or tactics of other organizations, as long as the individuals or organizations involved are not identified.

All products displayed at the Conference must comport with the vision of animal liberation in their message and images, and they must be free of animal ingredients, and not be tested on animals.

For Photographers

Registration and attendance at the Conference implies consent to being photographed and recorded for promotional or other Conference purposes.

However, all commercial photographers and all videographers must obtain recording permission from Conference management and respect the wishes of individuals who choose not to be recorded.
