ZERO TOLERANCE HARASSMENT POLICY

WE DO NOT tolerate harassment in any form. In most circumstances those involved in such behavior will be expelled from the convention with no refund. Harassment includes, but is not limited to: verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination (related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, appearance, body size, race, age, religion); overt adult images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of panels or other events; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention. If you are asked to stop any harassing behavior you must comply immediately.

Once again, Las Cruces Comic Con’s code of conduct and other rules are subject to change at any time and without notice at the discretion of the convention. Please check back regularly if you have questions or for updates. Violation of the rules is grounds for immediate loss of your convention badge and suspension from the convention at the very least.
