SAFER SPACE GUIDELINES
We use the word "safer" to acknowledge that safety is relative: not everyone feels safe under the same conditions.
Our spaces are for all self-identifying women, including lesbian, bi, queer or questioning women, trans women, non-binary/genderfluid people wishing to access a women-centered space, and for those whose gender identity includes woman some or all of the time. Our spaces are inclusive of women of color, older women, women with disabilities, and folks preferring to identify in gender-neutral terms.
In order to enable us to come together and celebrate ourselves, there are a few ground rules to ensure that everyone feels as welcome and comfortable as possible at all times.
If you feel unsafe at any point, or witness any problematic behavior, please let our event staff know.
Participants must be 21 years old.
A pronoun is how you refer to someone, for example using she or they. Please ask people what their pronouns are if you are meeting them for the first time. Use their correct pronouns, even if the words are unfamiliar to you. If you make a mistake and refer to someone with the wrong pronoun, apologize and move on.
Don’t make assumptions about someone’s identity and think about the ways that people from minority groups may be impacted in different ways by the issues you discuss. Be aware that your experiences are not necessarily the same as everybody else in the room. Be aware of any position and privileges you may bring regarding for example your race, your class, your gender identity, your ability or your age. Ask questions respectfully, and understand that no one is required to share information about their identities or experience(s).
Racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, ableism, fatphobia, ageism or discrimination on basis of ethnicity, immigration status, or religious, cultural, and/or spiritual beliefs, or any other kind of oppressive behavior is unacceptable and will be challenged. Please do not use slurs that are not yours to use: e.g if you are white do not use racial slurs, even if you are being critical of them. Please give a choice for people to interact without having to talk if they don’t want to.
There is a zero tolerance policy to sexual harassment. This means no unwanted touching, so please make sure you have consent before engaging in any physical contact with someone. This also means no wolf whistling or catcalling, and no inappropriate sexual comments or sexually based jokes, songs or taunts.
Space to Speak
Please be aware that it may be difficult for those belonging to marginalized groups or minority groups to participate in discussions. Be mindful of the space you take. If you have spoken on several occasions, make sure that you are giving space for other to participate; try to give less confident and quieter people a chance to speak.
API – Assume Positive Intent
Not everyone comes in with the same set of experiences and knowledge, so assume that people have good intent. Please have positive intent yourself, and be accountable for the impact of your actions and words as well.
Roam is a space where we expect attendees to take into account the needs and comfort levels of others, and not just prioritize our own experiences or points-of-view. We believe that community is about treating each other respectfully, caring for one another, inviting each other in, and holding each other up.
Everything in our safer spaces guidelines also extends to social media platforms
Only registered event participants, volunteers, and staff are allowed on festival grounds, including designated camping areas and annexed spaces. Please respect that your non-registered husband, partner, friend, child, and/or aquaintance is not allowed for legal/liability reasons and because their presence may violate our Safe Space policy.
Park in designated areas. Absolutely NO PARKING in Shuttle Zone, emergency vehicle EMS corridor, and designated staff /vendor parking areas.
Please do not leave personal bikes or demo bikes unattended without being locked. We are not responsible for damaged or stolen bikes, equipment, or personal belongings.
No demo bikes may be taken or ridden outside of designated ride areas. We select trail routes and shuttle drop-off locations to ensure bikes are returned within a reasonable time frame. Please do not take a demo bike out ALL DAY - it is unfair to paying festival participants who may want to try the same bike. There are several local bike shops that have rental fleets.
Ride Guides are VOLUNTEERS, not professional guides. Please treat them with respect and patience.
At the campground, fire must be contained – in a fire pit, grill, or another safe place. A burn ban may be in effect in dry conditions - this will be strictly enforced when applicable.
Respect campground quiet hours of 10PM-8AM.
No generators or amplified music at the campground between 9PM-8AM.
Please be sure that garbage makes it into a receptacle and that recyclable items are recycled!
Do not remove or damage your wristband.
No unauthorized vending – only registered vendors may sell goods or services on festival grounds.
No smoking - including e-cigarettes & vape pens.
Festival goers must abide by all local, state, and federal laws. NO ALCOHOL OR DRUG SALES will be tolerated anywhere on the festival site or annexed properties.
No Pets. "Service Animals" as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act will be allowed. "Emotional Support" animals and "Pets" ARE NOT covered under the ADA and therefore WILL NOT be allowed. All service animals must be registered with Festival ADA Services and be given festival credentials. Service animals must be physically restrained at all times, and it must remain with the person it provides service to at all times
All registered participants are subject to our Event Policies and event organizers reserve the right to eject/excuse any individual from event grounds (including annexed spaces).
