SAFE ZONE Ally Training
Friday, Jun 28, 2013
12 p.m. - 5 p.m. Location: Galaxy Rooms

SAFE ZONE is a national concept in which safe spaces are identified and marked with a symbol unique to each campus. By displaying the SAFE ZONE logo on a department door, office or desk, Allies show that they value a diverse campus community, are willing to foster a safe place for others, and are committed to offer support, resources, and guidance.

You can become a SAFE ZONE Ally by attending Ally Training, which provides a venue for participants, LGBTQ people and Allies to express concerns, ask questions, and learn about issues affecting the LGBTQ campus and surrounding community. After completion of the training, participants will receive a certificate, SAFE ZONE logo, resources, and will be equipped with the tools necessary to:

  • Respond appropriately
  • Know resources and/or where to find them
  • Show support and safeguard the rights of LGBTQ people
  • Examine his/her own attitudes, behaviors, and values, and to challenge others to do the same
  • Appreciate and value the contributions of LGBTQ people
