Our guiding principles

Physics Allies serve as a safe zone for attendees at American Association of Physics Teacher (AAPT) meetings who are experiencing harassment. Harassment can include, but is not limited to, unwelcome interactions related to a person’s gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, international status, and ability status.* Attendees who experience uncomfortable or unsafe situations during the meeting may contact the Allies. Allies commit to act according to the following guiding principles:

*We recognize that we currently have more resources on this website related to gender than other aspects of people’s identities. If you have constructive feedback to help us improve, please feel free to send us a note (anonymously or otherwise) using the contact form on the CONTACT US page. We also recognize that our team members have different expertise from each other, and we can help you to be strategic in who you talk to in these regards.
