Ravelry announcement 

General thank you for the community at large for fostering such a rich discussion on inclusion, privilege, and inherent bias, and for the places that offer a safe space for those discussions.  Marginalizing any group of people based on specific characteristics of their person is not acceptable, and we are working on implementing a basic ‘don’t be a jerk’ code of conduct for distribution to our retreat attendees.

We like to believe we’ve fostered no exclusionary or discriminatory behaviors at our events or in our community, but please reach out to us if you have any concerns or would like to discuss anything on this topic.
