Join Us to Discuss Safer Spaces at Silent Barn Tuesday at 8PM

October 20, 2013

What is a safer space? How can we create inclusive spaces that promote a culture of respect and accountability? How do safer space policies work; how are they negotiated; how are they implemented? What are the benefits of implementing a safer space policy? What are the possible disadvantages or fallouts? Can any space truly be considered “safer”?
