STAPLE! Anti-Harassment Policy

In keeping with our mission to foster community and acceptance around comics and independent creativity, and a harassment free experience for all, regardless of (but not limited to) race, religion, sex, orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, age, or disability, no harassment of any kind will be tolerated at STAPLE!

Harassment includes, but is not limited to, offensive verbal comments, intimidation, threats, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome attention or advances, and sexual, racist, derogatory, threatening, or other inappropriate language and imagery.

Anyone who engages in harassing behaviors will be ejected from the show without refund, and law enforcement will be contacted if deemed necessary.
