Intervention’s Co-Founder, Oni Hartstein quoted wrt Convention Harassment Policies #CosplayIsNotConsent

I guess Oni Hartstein would be me. Hi.

Intervention has always taken our attendee’s safety in a very serious way. When we mean that we are a Safe Space for families, we mean every type of family, all genders, everyone. So far, we’ve been boring my Security staff because we are so low-drama and so friendly. Last year even the 21+ late night room parties piled up their garbage as neatly as humanly possible and dutifully cleaned their rooms:

That’s something you don’t see every day at cons.

We have had a great harassment policy in place from the start to make sure that as we grow, we keep our Security staff as bored as they are now. We were actually one of the first cons to roll out such a policy and stand up for #CosplayIsNotConsent. Our friendly atmosphere will always stay true to the spirit of Intervention. The reason we thought this through in this way is based on some of my own personal life experiences.

I had the opportunity to speak to Jill Pantozzi of The Mary Sue about it. Go and check it out.

Make sure you read through to the bottom!
