Safer Space Policy

Grand Rapids Zine Fest is organized to create and uphold a space that is not ruled by commercial interests, publishing giants, sexist, racist, ageist, ableist, and/or trans/homophobic individuals. It is a collectively shared and generative space wherein all peoples involved are respected and cared for. For these, and a number of other reasons, GRZF will not tolerate zinesters, zines, or attendees who promote what we are working against.

We try our best to keep this event fun and stress-free for all, and we appreciate your willingness to learn together. There are only two main organizers, so please help us out by letting us know immediately if there is a concern.

Our safer spaces policy is not a guarantee of a perfect space, but indeed a safer one. It’s also a promise that we’re all in this complex struggle together. Thank you for helping us achieve this.
