The Dallas Music Network Safe Space Policy aims to ensure an open and welcoming environment on our stages, in our interview chairs, and throughout every aspect of our workspaces so that all our musicians, technicians, and staff feel comfortable participating.
Dallas Music Network has adopted this Safe Space Policy recognizing that systematic oppression attempts to exclude certain groups. This safe space policy protects oppressed groups and encourages their full participation. Dallas Music Network is committed to operating as an inclusive and supportive space where no forms of discrimination are tolerated. Racism, homophobia, biphobia, sexism, transphobia, disablism, or prejudice based on age, ethnicity, nationality, class, gender, gender identity, language ability, immigration status, or religious affiliation is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Dallas Music Network requires all musicians and staff to adhere to this policy. This policy also extends to all online communications (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Website, etc.).
