Harassment Policy

PAX has a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY for harassment of any kind, including but not limited to:

Stalking, intimidation, offensive verbal comments, physical assault and/or battery, harassing or non-consensual photography or recording, sustained disruption of panels, signings and other events, bathroom policing, inappropriate physical contact, or unwelcome physical attention in relation to, but not limited to race, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, gender presentation, sexual orientation, age body size, disability, appearance, religion, citizenship, pregnancy

To report an incident via the PAX App tap the PAX Anti-Harassment Policy icon and follow the steps under Report Harassment. Please fill out the form in as much detail as possible so we can address the situation immediately and thoroughly. If you're still in the area where the incident took place and it's safe to stay where you are, our Security Team will meet you there.

If a person engages in harassing behavior, PAX (PAX) Staff will take prompt action in any form they deem appropriate, including expulsion from PAX with no refund. Our policy applies to EVERYONE at the convention. Exhibitors, Fans (Attendees), Speakers, Guests, Professionals, Press, Staff, Volunteers, and Security are all subject to our anti-harassment policy and will be held to the same standards and disciplinary action.

Anyone can report harassment. If someone’s behavior has made you uncomfortable, or if you witness the same happening to someone else, you should immediately contact an Enforcer or Building Staff.

If necessary, we will contact local law enforcement, provide escort, offer a safe place or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to make sure they feel safe for the rest of PAX.

Remember: Cosplay is not consent. Keep your hands to yourself. If you would like to take a picture with or of another PAX Fan, always ask first and respect that person's right to say no. When at PAX, be respectful, be nice, be cool, and be kind to each other.
