The purpose of the SAFE ZONE program is to provide campus "safe zones" where individuals affected by homophobia, hateful acts, & sexual violence can safely go for support and assistance. By placing the SAFE ZONE symbol on their office door, desk, or backpack, SAFE ZONE 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.
