Survey: Code of Conduct Violations at ALA Conferences
Are you aware of ALA’s Code of Conduct? It exists to provide ALA conference attendees with a “harassment-free environment for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, physical appearance, ethnicity, religion or other group identity.”
Have you been harassed, sexually or otherwise, at a conference? Experienced transphobia or homophobia or ableism? Felt unsafe? Experienced unwanted physical contact? Received fatphobic comments? Been stalked, either physically or virtually? Have you witnessed any of the previous situations? OR, have you only had pleasant conference experiences? Please fill out this survey.
At only 10 questions long, this survey exists to document Code of Conduct violations at ALA conferences. Consider filling it out if you have EVER attended an ALA conference. Any anecdotes and/or stories appreciated.
UPDATE: We found photographers so quickly via this form that we decided to just go with first come (submitted), first served (notified). So at this point signing up is now closed. So fast! Keep an eye out at #alaac14!
We need YOU to help us take photos during ALA. You don’t need a fancy camera or photography experience, but you do need to be friendly, ready to approach strangers, and have eye for appreciating all the diversity in dress, style, and representation that makes ALA great.
