Becoming an ally: SafeZone introductory training

Submitted by SafeZone

SafeZone allies provide "safe zones" where individuals affected by homophobia, hateful acts and sexual violence can safely go for support and assistance.

Become an ally for SafeZone by attending the introductory training at 12:30-2:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10, in the Town Hall Room of Leadership Studies Building. The training is open to university employees, students and members of the community. Register for the training online.

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 that 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.
