CONSENTROCKS LETTERS

http://www.Consent.Rocks

The Consent Rocks Crew is a group trained to be the first response ready to handle consent issues, or other interpersonal concerns that occur during an event. Team members will be on site throughout the event as a dedicated resource to deal with consent incidents. The CRC is a well-rounded, diverse group of individuals who are qualified to handle these often difficult matters in a caring and empathetic manner.

 

The Consent Rocks Crew is an effort to better deal with consent issues that occur during large events. If anyone feels unsafe or uncomfortable or even simply has questions about negotiation, the team is here to help. They are available if you just need someone to talk to, to hear you. You may also use them to help with facilitated discussions.

 

The team will be available throughout the event. Those seeking a CRC team member should go to any event staff or volunteer, contact the CRC Manager on Duty, or an event dungeon monitor, who will relay your request and arrange a meeting. We will do our best to keep diverse staff available to accommodate an attendee's preference for gender.

 

Your meeting will be held in private and will not be discussed with anyone outside of the team and/or event management. The CRC is simply an additional resource to help with consent matters. We are always prepared to call the police, ambulance, and other support services should they be needed.

 

The Crew coming for FIRE 2017 are shown below
along with emails in case anyone would like to contact them
pre-event, during the event, or even after.
