Care & support at SRCCON events

SRCCON SAFETY HELPLINE: If you would like to make any reports, please call (267) 540-3177 or email us at safety@opennews.org.

The spirit of generosity that animates this community is a big part of what led to SRCCON. We heard again and again that folks wanted to have space to share with and support one another. We expect some thought-provoking talks, intriguing sessions, and uplifting conversations during our three days together, so we wanted to share some thoughts about how we’re creating the space for those and the support we can offer to one another.

As you’re getting settled into SRCCON this week, check out our Preparing for SRCCON page, for details about how to access SRCCON online, our virtual registration booth, and more. Here we’ve adapted a guide for care and support we’ve used for recent in-person events.

Inviting others into your conversation

When telling us why you wanted to come to this event, many of you told us you wanted to meet others who were also working on making change in your newsrooms and teams.

Taking care of yourself

Taking care of each other

We hope you’re feeling an openness to taking care of your own needs as the priority here. We hope with your own feeling of care and nourishment, that will also open up space for us to take care of each other as well.

Thank you to the AdaCampToolkit for conference self-care, the Open Heroines Slack Rules of Engagement, and to the Facilitation for Liberation Network Gathering for inspiration and resources for this page.
