A highly diverse panel of outspoken dancers and activists discuss what we know about making our community and events safe and inviting for everyone, especially women and those who identify as LGBTQIA. Discussion topics will include codes of conduct, sexual assault reporting and how it often fails, hiring and training practices that lead to environments that resist exploitation, the intersection of racism and sexism in our community (misogynoir), and overcoming resistance to necessary change. Hosted by community organizer and 18-year veteran of the swing dance community, Kelly Porter.
