We have also written an accessible “cheat sheet” for the bylaws and conflict of interest policy. Read it here.
In addition to the Bylaws, Nolose has other policies, community-driven guidelines, and documents that inform the way that the Board and Committees make decisions, and the ways that our community works.
We have Community Agreements. Everyone who registers for a conference must acknowledge reading and agree to follow the Community Agreements. It is also used in some of our community’s unofficial social media groups and listservs. It’s a living document, and will be under review by the Policy Committee and interested volunteers in the next few months. We will announce the formation of a working group soon.
Nolose hosts a letter written in 2012 by an independent group of people of color that included the co-presidents of Nolose at the time, and other members of our community, A Response to Fat White Activism From People of Color in the Fat Justice Movement.
We have a statement about the change to our gender policy, written in 2011.
