Mission Statement and a brief description of goals and presentations offered
The mission of the NCSF - Legal Education Outreach Program is
(1) to provide information to members of the SM-Leather-Fetish, swing and poly communities concerning legal issues that may affect them,
(2) to provide education, as appropriate, to law enforcement and other authorities about the our communities, and
(3) to assist and support the outreach and education efforts of local alternative communities to local authorities.
The NCSF Incident Reporting & Response Team's purpose is to provide assistance to individuals and groups within the alternative sexual expression communities who become victimized by actions of local authorities in opposition to the freedom of expression of SM, leather/fetish, or swing practices.
NCSF is not legal aid, nor do we offer specific legal advice for individuals. NCSF is a resource for the members of the kink, poly and Lifestyle communities and for people seeking information about them. NCSF provides publicly available information on kink and nonmonogamy for consenting adults. We advocate on behalf of the BDSM, swing and polyamory communities.
The issue must openly, directly, and specifically relate to BDSM, swing or poly activities between consenting adults; in other words, the problems you face must relate to or be caused from your involvement in BDSM, swing or poly without question.
