How to Virtual AMC
Bienvenidx al AMC!Guia Virtual en Español
The AMC is a collective effort and thrives off the generosity and commitment of all the presenters, participants, coordinators, volunteers and staff.
The AMC is an opportunity to model the kind of world in which we want to live.
These agreements are designed to support AMC participants to show up with their full selves. They are designed to help us navigate the inevitable conflict that can arise when flawed and beautiful humans are attempting to create community together. They are not designed to address deliberate attacks on our community. The AMC staff will immediately remove anyone who is showing up with the intent to inflict harm on any participant or on the conference as a whole.
With all this in mind, we ask that you agree to the following, as we move together through sessions, nighttime events, and all the spaces in between virtual and IRL:
Take care of yourself! You do not have to attend everything, do everything or be everywhere throughout the weekend. See our Self Care resources for ways that you can maintain your health, energy and well-being during the virtual AMC.
Ask questions before assuming. The best way to understand the choices, actions, or intentions of one another is by asking.
Default to direct communication before a public “call-out.”
- For conference-related concerns, email email@example.com
- For support with inter-personal direct communication, contact the Safety Team.
When offering critical feedback, do so with the belief that people can change; when receiving critical feedback, listen to others with a willingness to change.
If you need something at the conference, ask for it!
- Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- If someone is asking you for support, do your best to help them find a resource or solution.
Stay flexible and patient around any technology needs, changes, cancellations or schedule shifts throughout the weekend. We are doing this for the very first time!
Respect the identity parameters of sessions. For ex: If a session says for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) only, and you do not identify as BIPOC, please do not sign up for that session.
When you are in sessions, adhere to the following:
- Do not record or screenshot any session without notification or consent.
- Mute yourself when you are not speaking.
- Consider these tips for digital safety.
Help ensure that the AMC is accessible for all. Review these tips for supporting disability justice and language justice at the AMC.
