How does the kink community address consent violations as a community?
How do communities heal or recover from an egregious consent violation event?
What is restorative or transformative justice, and how do communities do it?
We will have a panel of community leaders with experience and insight into how communities handle consent violations (both consent mistakes and intentional consent violations) when they occur. We will explore practices in accountability, and try to learn how communities can do it better.

Things we hope to learn
How does a community go about finding the truth about a possible consent violation?
How does accountability around a consent violation work, when the person accused holds a position of leadership or power in the community?
Can there be overreach when attempting to hold someone accountable for a possible consent violation?
We will have panelists from NCSF, APEX, and 3SC

Cancellation / Grievance Policy
TASHRA reserves the right to cancel any event that does not meet our minimum registration within 4 business days of the class. If TASHRA cancels an educational event, you will receive a credit toward another community education event in the future.
While TASHRA makes every attempt to assure fair treatment for all participants, occasionally complaints will arise about continuing education programs. The procedures for addressing complaints are as follows:
When a participant files a complaint, either orally or in written format, and expects action on the complaint, the following actions will be taken.
- If the grievance concerns a speaker, the content presented by the speaker, or the style of presentation, the individual making the complaint will be asked to put his/her comments in written format. The on-site Coordinator will then pass the comments on to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the complainant.
- If the complaint concerns a workshop offering, its content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the workshop was offered, on-site Coordinator will mediate and attempt to resolve the complaint on-site. If the participant requests action, the Coordinator is empowered to:
- provide a credit for a subsequent workshop, or
- provide a partial or full refund of the workshop fee.
Actions 2b and 2c will require a written note, documenting the grievance, for record keeping purposes. The note need not be signed by the grieved individual.
- If the complaint is made after the program has occurred or concerns the TASHRA programming more generally, the TASHRA Complaint Panel will address it as follows:
- Request that the complainant submit a written complaint and propose an appropriate remedy,
- provide the instructor(s) with the opportunity to respond to the complaint and propose an appropriate remedy,
- review these documents, make a final determination, and decide on any remedy.
