With the launch of the StoryCorps app and the companion StoryCorps Archive website, we intend to establish a community in which everyone is welcome and all people feel comfortable sharing and interacting with each other.
In order to help facilitate a positive environment, here are a few important reminders:
All voices heard in interviews–whether archived on the StoryCorps Archive website or not–must belong to individuals who have agreed to be recorded for a StoryCorps conversation.
Interviews, communities and their accompanying photographs, metadata and descriptive text must be done in a responsible and thoughtful manner.
We will not allow the StoryCorps app or the StoryCorps Archive website to be used for attacks on others based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or medical condition.
We will not tolerate the use of the StoryCorps app and the StoryCorps Archive website to bully or harass anyone.
For StoryCorps, thoughtfulness and respect are the cornerstones of the community we are building. The higher the degree of respect you show to others, the more rewarding your experience will be.
Questions or comments? We’d love to hear from you.
