If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a local meeting organizer, the Samvera Community Helpers (email), a community member you trust, or the Samvera Steering Group immediately.
If you are at a meeting or other event, find an event organizer, a Samvera helper, or a representative of the Steering Group. He or she will assist you. Samvera 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 Samvera IRC channel, a bot named "zoia" can list people designated as channel helpers if you issue the
@helperscommand. Each person in that list has volunteered to help victims of harassment. You may also send email to the Samvera Community Helpers (email) or the Samvera Steering Group; their names are available on the Hydra Samvera wiki.
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.
