Arisia offers spaces to help our diverse members feel more secure in their convention experiences. During a non-virtual convention, our safer spaces include:
- Gender-free restrooms
- A safer space for Arisians of color
- A quiet room
Safer Space for Arisians of Color
Westin Room: 567
Building on the success of the People of Color meetups, this year we're pleased to offer a permanent space for Arisians of color to rest, unwind, and connect. The meetups provided a place for members of our community to meet each other and share stories and support. This space strives to provide the same thing over the duration of the convention, in addition to the more active engagement provided by the meetups.
For the safety and comfort of its users, the Safer Space for Arisians of Color will be staffed exclusively by volunteers who are people of color.
