Safer Space for People of Color

  • contact:  pocsaferspace@wiscon.net

Because WisCon is a physical space with tendrils extending into the virtual world, one of the things we can provide is space for face-to-face networking and problem-solving. As part of our commitment to our guiding principles and our recognition of intersectionality, rooms 612 & 613 of the Concourse Hotel are a designated space for people of color to dialogue freely and openly.

The WisCon convention committee asks that all members respect and observe this decision. To reserve a time slot for a specific discussion topic in the Safer Space, please sign up on the sheet located in the Green Room.

Safer Space Hours

Friday: 1pm-2am
Saturday & Sunday: 8:30am-2am

WisCon’s concom welcomes any suggestions or ideas related to WisCon that result from the networking and strategizing taking place in this space. Please submit these ideas to the coordinators of the Green Room, who will pass them on to the WisCon concom.

If you or your group would like to meet with WisCon concom members, please give that request to the Green Room Coordinators and we will work to find a mutually satisfactory time to meet.
