The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are central to the values and goals of CONFEST. They require n safe and welcoming environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group. The organization of CONFEST is committed to providing such an environment during the whole event.
We expect all participants to abide by the following:
- Exercise consideration and respect in your speech and actions;
- Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech;
- Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants;
- Alert community leaders if you notice a dangerous situation, someone in distress, or violations of this policy, even if they seem inconsequential.
