The statement below is a working document that we hope to have in a form that can be approved by member vote at the 2013 annual meeting. Discussion is encouraged, particularly on the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list.
We welcome you.
We welcome people of any gender identity or expression, race, ethnicity, size, nationality, sexual orientation, ability level, neurotype, religion, elder status, family structure, culture, subculture, political opinion, identity, and self-identification.
As a U.S.- and District of Columbia-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization we're obliged to follow applicable laws, but we're serious about knowing and protecting your rights when it comes to free expression and privacy.
We support maximum freedom of creative expression, and only restrict that when we must for the safety and sanity of other folks. We think creativity is one of the greatest accomplishments of the human mind, and we want to enable that creativity in everyone from pro to amateur. We think neurodiversity is a feature, not a bug. We believe in being inclusive, welcoming, and supportive of anyone who comes to us with good faith and the desire to build a community.
