We recognize the privilege of owning and operating a business on the original lands of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation. We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we dedicate ourselves to operating in the spirit of reconciliation.
The Public is committed to providing a welcoming and safe environment for everyone. We have a zero-tolerance policy on hateful, sexist, racist, homophobic, and transphobic actions or speech, and on unwanted sexual conduct and harassment. We reserve the right to ask anyone to leave the taproom and gallery if they violate this policy.
If at any time you are made to feel uncomfortable or unsafe, please tell a staff member or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage everyone entering The Public to participate in creating an atmosphere where the safety of others is valued.
Patrons are not permitted to touch the works of art on display (unless otherwise indicated).
We welcome the continuing discussion and improvement of this policy.
Thanks for your help, understanding, and support.
