  1. Report

    If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a local meeting organizer, the Hydra community helpers (email), a community member you trust, or the Project Hydra Steering Group immediately. 

  2. Escalate

    If you are at a meeting or other event, find an event organizer, a Hydra helper, or a representative of the Steering Group. He or she will assist you. Project Hydra meeting organizers can be identified by their name badges, and will help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the meeting/conference.

    If you are in the #projecthydra IRC channel, a bot named "zoia" can list people designated as channel helpers if you issue the @helpers command. Each person in that list has volunteered to help victims of harassment. You may also send email to the Hydra community helpers (email) or the Project Hydra Steering Group; their names are available on the Hydra wiki.

    If you have been harassed over email, you may send email to the Hydra community helpers (email) or the Project Hydra Steering Group; their names are available on the Hydra wiki. 

  3. Resolve

    If incident results in corrective action, the community should support those harmed by the incident, either publicly or privately (whatever individuals are comfortable with).

    Should an individual aiming to help a victim of harassment encounter issues following the anti-harassment policy and protocol, that individual should engage the community about these issues. Then, the community should revise the policy or protocol appropriately to ensure a safe and welcoming community in which harassment is not tolerated.
