Announcement regarding hate speech
The Furst State is dedicated to providing a safe, fun, and welcoming environment for everyone, regardless of age, race, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, ability, physical appearance, furry identity (or lack thereof), or religious/spiritual beliefs.

The recent rise of "Altfurry" and the group known as the Furry Raiders have caused concern among our event attendees as well as staff. The recent events in Charllotesville, Virginia have further compelled us to speak out about these issues. The people running The Furst State are a diverse group including men, women, transgender individuals, and people of color. It is vitally important to us that we are able to maintain the vibrant, expressive community The Furst State is home to.

Displaying hateful media of any kind, including clothing, flyers, drawings, etc. is prohibited at Furst State events and on our forum, website, and other web presences. This includes displaying imagery that invokes Nazi or supremacism beliefs. Yes, this includes the Furry Raiders armband. No, we don't care if you come in a tie-dye or blue armband instead of a red one. They are still not allowed.

Anyone facing harrassment of any kind is encouraged to contact Furst State staff. You can reach any of us via the Staff page at thefurststate.com: http://thefurststate.com/staff.html
