What is Elephant At The Con?

Elephant At The Con is a campaign by Uplift dedicated to shining a light on convention safety issues by collecting attendee stories and quantitative data on abuse and harassement at conventions with the goal of creating action plans for organizers to improve in the future.

  • We believe people of all identities have the right to feel safe at conventions.
  • We believe every convention has its own challenges and areas for improvement.
  • We believe convention organizers and their communities want to do the right thing.
  • We believe quantitative data and personal stories will empower convention organizers to make their next event safer for all.
