Festival Harassment Policy

The Bronx Book Festival is committed to providing a safe space for everyone, regardless of age, body size, citizenship, disability, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other marginalization. Harassment of any kind (including but not limited to: inappropriate physical contact; deliberate following, stalking, photographing, or recording; unwelcome sexual attention; sustained disruption; and discriminatory comments) will not be tolerated.The Bronx Book Festival understands the sensitivity of such matters and will endeavor to investigate and respond to all reports in a timely matter while maintaining the confidentiality of the reporter to the fullest extent possible.

Anyone participating in such behavior (including festival goers, festival committee, staff, volunteers, panelists, and vendors) will be subject to disciplinary action by the Bronx Book Festival committee, which may include: a warning, removal from festival grounds, banning from future Bronx Book Festival events, and in extreme cases, notifying local law enforcement.

Anyone may report harassment by alerting the Festival committee, a festival volunteer, or the information desk. If you’re unable or don't wish to report in person, you can email the Festival committee at bronxbookfestplanningcommittee@gmail.com (though please note this may not be actively monitored on the day of the festival).
