BARCC Response Workshop

Last January, we arranged a BARCC (Boston Area Rape Crisis Center) workshop on responding to sexual harassment that was very well received and we promised to do it again this year.

We have arranged to have a workshop from BARCC on the topic of responding to reports of harassment within the community for Boskone & Arisia staff, and anyone else interested. It will be on Tuesday, December 11th, at the NESFA Clubhouse, at 7:30pm.
