Limited Capacity seats available

There's no denying that sexual harassment, sexual assault, and intimate partner violence are serious problems in both the gaming industry and the gaming community at large. It's easy for outsiders to say "go to HR" or "go to the police," but those may not be viable or even desired options for all victims. This panel of attorneys will provide information on a variety of non-criminal legal options, as well as community resources to help victims find safety and support. We will be focusing as much as possible on low cost or no cost solutions, and legal responses that do not require an attorney. This panel is for anyone who may be experiencing, or has experienced, sexual violence, no matter their gender or sexual orientation. We also welcome anyone who wants to learn about options to help friends or family who are victims and may not feel comfortable attending themselves. Attendees will be provided with information packets for reference, and we will also have a system for asking questions anonymously during the Q&A section of the panel.

Due to the sensitive nature of this topic there will be no photography allowed in the panel room for the duration of the session.
