Cosplay-Congress! started this petition to Convention and

Liberty City Anime Con is one of many conventions that is held in New York City. Unfortunately, though, it has a failed staff team. According to many cosplayers I've spoken to, a number of staff members caused issues for other people and even disrespected them. In harsher cases, some people (including minors) were hit on and sexually harassed. This ruins a conventions fun and rating. also, especially when there's crowded areas, staff has dealt with it aggressively. 

The hiring system for staff for this convention goes by simply volunteering and filling out a small form, the same form used for conventions like Anime Midwest and Anime-ZAP! The form itself requires a person to fill out what they'd want to do, and some information about themselves, while asking if they've committed an extreme crime before. This form gives a lot of leeway for people who harass others to get a spot — but it also allows people who can't handle the responsibility in. To be con staff, one would have to handle the stress of the position, not just be able to do it.

What this petition would bring across would be changes to this form, adding more questions and/or more requirements. Things along the lines of being able to handle a stressful situation, being able to deal with angry people and crowds, be RESPECTFUL TO CONGOERS, And to appropriately approach a situation a convention goer is having. This petition would also make the staff requirements and consequences more strict — for example, if staff harassed numerous cosplayers numerous times and gets reported more than one (or there's evidence of the assault), they'll remove that staff member from their position and not be allowed in the following years.
