Safe Zone’s purpose is to make our campus a safer and freer environment for all members of our community. The session provides education about homophobia, transmisogyny, cis-and heterosexism with the goal of reducing fear, challenging unconscious bias, and creating a safe haven for individuals who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer or Questioning, and Asexual (LGBTQ+).
Participants will be provided tools to encourage a welcoming and inclusive environments for LGBTQ+ students, faculty, staff, and community members.
Individuals that attend the training are encouraged to be Safe Zone Allies. Allies provide a safe haven, a listening ear, or open accessibility for the LGBTQ+ community who are in need of advice or services from that individual. The Safe Zone program provides participants with training, information, and community resources to those who express interest in becoming a Safe Zone Ally.
