Unrig Summit is about crossing partisan and ideological divides, sharing ideas and best practices, building relationships, advancing winning solutions, and working together to unrig America’s political system. Event Management encourages the free exchange of ideas and opinions, lively debate, and disagreement in pursuit of solutions to our nation’s political crisis, but insists that such expression be made with respect for the dignity and freedom of others. Event Management will not tolerate viewpoint discrimination against any member of the Summit community. As such, this Code of Conduct is provided to ensure that such debate and disagreement stay within the collaborative, respectful, and solutions-oriented spirit of the Summit.
Event Management reserves the right to remove any Summit participant at any point if they engage in any activity that may violate this Code of Conduct. Event Management has empowered all activity moderators, room moderators, event staff, and Music City Center staff and officials to enforce this Code of Conduct and to report any incidents to the Event Coordinator. Please note that in the event of any security, medical, or other emergency incident, or of any incident or behavior that may violate this Code of Conduct, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, or other sexual misconduct, attendees are strongly encouraged to immediately notify either the Unrig Info Desk or the nearest RepresentUs staff member (blue shirts) or Event Volunteer (red shirts).
In addition, in order to protect the privacy and personal safety of Unrig attendees, incidents of sexual harassment, sexual assault, or other sexual misconduct can also be reported by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that Event Management will promptly relay all reported incidents or allegations of unlawful behavior to local law enforcement in accordance with applicable laws.
