Safer spaces for events
As per our Equality Policy (2016), Auld Reekie Roller Girls (ARRG) promotes equality and inclusion in roller derby, strives to create accessible and inclusive spaces for marginalised people, and is committed to creating an environment in which every person attending an ARRG event or interacting with ARRG feels safe, welcome, and free from discrimination or harassment.
As part of our commitment to create a safer space for all those attending we will not tolerate any form of discrimination, harassment, racism, body shaming or LGBTQIA+phobia.
Guidelines for those attending ARRG events or using ARRG online spaces:
Be responsible for your own actions. Remember that your actions have an effect on others regardless of your intentions.
Don’t assume people’s ethnicity, culture, sexuality, gender or class. We suggest using the pronoun “they” as a default unless told otherwise, and we encourage asking people about their pronouns.
Give space to others: different people need different amounts of personal space so be generous.
If something doesn’t feel right, please speak up in that moment if you feel safe to do so. If you don’t feel safe doing so, please let an organiser or volunteer know as soon as you feel comfortable doing so, or ask a person you trust to do so on your behalf.
If you see something that does not respect these safer spaces guidelines, please speak to an organiser or volunteer as soon as possible and they will take the issue forward.
Anyone who does not respect these guidelines, both in our online spaces and at our events, may be refused admission or asked to leave an event without a refund.
