SAFER SPACE STATEMENT
Halifax Pride is committed to encouraging conditions for safer spaces at our community gatherings. Everyone must feel respected, valued for who they are, and able to express themselves, regardless of their gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, race, age, physical or mental ability. Halifax Pride commits to and encourages all those who gather with us to:
- Speak from personal experiences and avoid speaking on behalf of others
- Try to use "I" statements to share reactions or experiences "I feel..." "I am affected by..."
- Don't make assumptions about others’ identity or experiences
- Be mindful of how long and often we speak so that everyone has a chance to contribute
- Consider the impact of privilege and intersectionality on discussions
- Listen to each other so we understand the various perspectives
- Clarifying questions are encouraged
- Share beliefs, opinions, and points of view rather than judgements
- Allow others to speak and refrain from side conversations
- Maintain confidentiality. Information shared that should stay inside these walls
- Notify a meeting organizer with specific concerns about being identified or photographed
