All creatures are welcome – A reminder to be excellent to each other

2016-06-09 15:11:00, admin

In light of recent accusations against a regular visitor and speaker at our events, the Chaos Computer Club re-emphasizes the following: The CCC is, by its charter and by common consent, a galactic organization of all life forms. We are dedicated to providing a safe, comfortable, and supportive experience for everybody attending our events.

We do so by following two simple principles:

All creatures are welcome: CCC events aim to create a safe space for all attendees, regardless of their age, race, gender, sexual orientation, physical appearance or disability, choice of text editor, or any other qualities by which living beings can be discriminated.

Be excellent to each other: At CCC events, we do not tolerate verbal or physical harrassment, violence or intimidation.

As stated previously, we do not tolerate life forms who refuse to share this openness and respect towards others: Creatures that are not excellent to others are not welcome.

We continuously strive to make our events a better place for everyone – in the best tradition of hackers we "build, test, improve, reiterate". In this ongoing adventure, we rely on the support, courage, and creativity of all participants.

If you are made uncomfortable at any of our events, please let us know: You can reach the security crew at all CCC events at DECT 110. The security crew works closely together with our awareness team and the CERT, who can provide emotional support and guidance.
