Harassment Policy

Baltimore Hackerspace is dedicated to being a harassment-free hackerspace for everyone, and we have taken a the Hollaback! Pledge and remain committed to providing a safe space. As non profit 501(c)3 organization we do not tolerate harassment of members or visitors in any form.

Harassment includes but is not limited to offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion; sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact; unwelcome sexual attention; or violation of any applicable laws. Members and visitors asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a member or visitor engages in harassing behavior, the board of directors or event organizer may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the space or event with no refund. Members violatingthese rules may be subject to termination of their Baltimore Hackerspace membership. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the board of directors or the event organizer immediately or send an email to our staff at confidential@baltimorehackerspace.com. Your e-mails will remain confidential.

E-mails sent to confidential@baltimorehackerspace.com are currently viewable by the following members:

  • Jeremy Ashinghurst
  • Paul King
  • David Powell

We expect members and visitors to follow these rules at all times, in the space itself, and in our online spaces including mailing lists. Our goal is that everyone feels welcome and is supportive of anyone who comes to us with good faith and the desire to participate and grow our community.

Thank you for your time reviewing this policy. We look forward to continuing to have a productive, creative, fun experience with you all.

Happy Hacking!
