The Charleston Lindy Exchange (CHEX) organizing committee is dedicated to providing a fun and harassment-free event experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form. Event participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from CHEX without a refund at the discretion of the CHEX organizers.
Harassment includes verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, or religion; sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of music or other events; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from CHEX with no refund. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the CHEX staff immediately.
CHEX staff will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of CHEX. We are so happy you chose to attend CHEX, and we want everyone to feel safe and have fun all weekend!
We expect participants to follow these rules at all CHEX venues and CHEX social events.
