06 Jan Friendly and Inclusive Space Policy
As we prepare for our 8th annual Atlanta Jewish Music Festival (AJMF8) line-up release next week we are proud to formalize our friendly and inclusive space policy that has been in effect on an informal basis but is now available for everyone to review.
The Atlanta Jewish Music Festival (AJMF) is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, physical appearance, age, race, ethnicity, political affiliation, national origin, or religion—and not limited to these aspects. We do not tolerate any form of harassment of event attendees. Any attendee violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event at the discretion of AJMF staff.
Harassment includes but is not limited to offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, physical appearance, age, race, ethnicity, political affiliation, national origin, or religion. Harassment also includes sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, unwelcome following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
AJMF 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 the event. We value your attendance and appreciate you supporting our mission of inspiring community through the transcendent power of Jewish music.
