SFWAR ACCESSIBILITY FOR THE WALK AGAINST RAPE

Fragrance Free Access:

Though we cannot guarantee a scent free safe space, we are encouraging Walk participants to come scent free in our outreach efforts.  Additionally, there will be scent free hand soap in the restrooms.

 

During the program in the auditorium, there will be a scent free area near air flow with standing room and limited seating for pregnant, elderly, and/or disabled folks.

 

During the march, we will be in a public space and therefore, may encounter fragrances.  Please do what you need to do to take care of yourself and please let a SFWAR volunteer of staff member know if we can assist you in any way.
