Safer Space Policy

The No More Sweden organizers are dedicated to fostering a safe-space environment at all our events: this means creating a space where all people, of any orientation, gender identity, and race, are respected, accepted and welcome. Harassment is not tolerated.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments — related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, antisemitism, language, or otherwise — deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Guests asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a guest engages in harassing behavior, Organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from our events. No refunds will be offered in the case of expulsion from a paid event.
Attendance at No More Sweden implies that the participants agree to, and will abide by, these rules.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an Organizer, you can find us pictured on the organizers page.

Organizers are ready to help out in any possible way, e.g. contacting venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the events.

Whilst we would like to feel that we offer an environment in which you can voice concerns about incidents as and when they happen we also welcome you to reach out to us to inform us of past harassment or incidents related to our events which made you feel uncomfortable or unsafe.

We value your attendance!
