American Atheists recently released the incident report that outlines what happened during the weekend of Skepticon 6. Our hearts go out to those who were involved and we hope that they are on their way to a place of healing.
As we move forward, Skepticon will be amending some internal policies regarding emergency situations and safety so that we can be better prepared should situations like this arise in the future. The safety of our attendees is of utmost importance to us and we promise to do everything in our power to ensure that our convention remains a safe place to be.
