Arisia’s core mission is to promote the celebration of science fiction, fantasy and speculative fiction, and to foster a diverse and actively inclusive community of fans.
Arisia recognizes that it exists within a society which marginalizes many of its citizens. We also recognize the specific axes of marginalization that are historically present within the fandom community. Arisia strives to build a community that is inclusive of all races, genders, sexualities, religions, socioeconomic classes, disabilities, ages, and any other axis of marginalization. We recognize that this is an aspiration, not something we have achieved. Our goal as an organization is to arrive at a place where members of any and all marginalized groups can experience equal ownership of the convention and corporation.
