Purpose of a Code of Conduct.
A Code of Conduct is used to set expectations for one’s behavior at an event such as Jeepstock, as well as to hold Jeepstock organizers accountable for a safe environment that is conducive to off-roading and socializing. If you find this Code of Conduct too restrictive, please do not attend this event.
Jeepstock is dedicated to providing a respectful, inclusive, and harassment-free space for everyone. We value and honor what you bring to this event, no matter your age, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, medical condition, pregnancy status, mental health, neuroatypicality, criminal history, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship status, socioeconomic status, religion (or lack thereof), general lifestyle choices, dietary preferences or Jeep model preference.
This Code of Conduct applies to all Jeepstock organizers, volunteers, sponsors, and participants. Vendors will also be held to the same standards. We reserve the right to remove any person who does not adhere to the Code of Conduct.
We do not tolerate harassment of any kind, including but not limited to the following behaviors, especially regarding the above-mentioned Jeepstock values:
- Intimidation or threats
- Inappropriate disruption of events
- Hurtful language
- Physical assault of any kind
- Inappropriate physical contact
- Unwanted sexual attention
- Sexual language or imagery
- Bullying or stalking
Reporting Behaviors Inconsistent With Code of Conduct.
Jeepstock is a “see-something, say-something” community. If you witness or are subject to any behaviors listed above or those that appear inconsistent with the stated Jeesptock values, you can make a report in one of the following ways:
- Submit a report through the Midwest Jeepthing website contact us page (which will notify designated event organizers/volunteers immediately)
- Locate an event organizer or volunteer, who is recognizable by their badges/t-shirts (or as otherwise explained by organizers at the beginning of the event). In an emergency, please call 911.
Response By Jeepstock Staff.
It is the goal of Jeepstock organizers and volunteers to resolve the reported issue as quickly as possible to ensure the safety of all. If we cannot immediately resolve the issue, we will do our best to set proper expectations of when we will be able to. We will take any action we deem appropriate, up to and including removal from the event premises. At a minimum, anyone asked to stop engaging in potentially unsafe behavior is expected to comply immediately. Event organizers and volunteers can also help you in contacting law enforcement, providing escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. If the person being reported is an event organizer or volunteer, they will be expected to recuse themselves immediately from handling your incident.
