We wanted to share our Safe(r) Spaces Po

We wanted to share our Safe(r) Spaces Policy with you all, because they have been updated recently. We have written out what it is we would like to see when we share NEF spaces together, because everyone might have a different idea of what safe(r) spaces look like to them. You will also see these posted at every event and are welcome to message us with any questions or talk to us in person if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks for helping us build awesome communities together!
