Becoming an Ally: SafeZone Introductory Training May 21

By SafeZone

This month SafeZone brings another SafeZone Introductory Training: "Becoming an Ally" from 1-3 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, in the Leadership Studies Building's Town Hall. Register online.

Individuals are trained to become SafeZone allies who provide "safe zones" where those affected by homophobia, hateful acts and sexual violence can safely go for support and assistance. By placing the SafeZone symbol on their office door, desk or backpack, SafeZone allies signify that their space is a safe place to talk about issues which impact people who have been affected by any type of hateful or homophobic act or who have been affected by sexual violence, sexual harassment or any criminal or distressing situation.
