  4. We do not engage in violence or threats.
  5. We obtain explicit consent for physical touch or using others’ belongings.
  6. We recognize that certain behavior can be triggering for individuals, such as trivializing or dismissing someone’s thoughts or experiences.

  8. We accept a shared responsibility where we hold ourselves and one another accountable to these agreements without violence, judgment, or assumption of intent.
  9. We encourage open minds and open hearts.
