SafeZone advanced training April 15
SafeZone will offer advanced training "Addressing Sexual Violence Against Students with Disabilities" from 11 a.m. to noon April 15 in 113 Leadership Studies Building.
Andrea Blair, Student Access Center director, and Jessica Haymaker and Jenna Tripodi, CARE Office coordinators, will deliver a joint presentation discussing different issues in the prevention of, response to and reporting of sexual violence against students with disabilities.
SafeZone has been a part of Kansas State University's atmosphere since the 1970s when it was initially started to help those facing discrimination because of sexual orientation. After a revitalization of the program in 2002, SafeZone has evolved to fit the needs of current K-State community members. Allies are now educated to help those coming from a variety of background with needs concerning hateful acts like bullying or discrimination, LGBTQ related concerns or sexual violence. Since SafeZone's creation on campus, more than 1,000 allies have been trained.
