Safe Zone Advanced Training: CARE Office presents Survivors of Trauma and Diverse Identities

Submitted by Brandon Haddock


Safe Zone at K-State will continue introductory and advanced trainings during the summer break.

The Safe Zone program, in the Department of Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs, invites anyone who has completed a Safe Zone Introductory Training to take the Safe Zone Advanced Training on Moving from Individual to Communal Response: Working with Survivors of Trauma with Diverse Identities from 1-3 p.m. on Monday, June 15, via Zoom.

For this training, Safe Zone has paired up with its partners in the Center for Advocacy Response and Education, or CARE, to offer advanced training for faculty, staff, student and community members who wish to learn more about recognizing and assisting those of diverse backgrounds in response to sexual and relationship violence. The link will be sent out to everyone registered for the Safe Zone event the night before the event.

Register for the June 15 Safe Zone Advanced Training presented by the Center for Advocacy Response and Education.

Safe Zone continues to be part of Kansas State University's efforts to create an open and affirming campus since the 1970s. Safe Zone was created to help those facing sexual orientation discrimination. Revitalization of the initiative in 2002 created a more comprehensive and ever-evolving Safe Zone effort to fit the needs of current K-State community members. Allies become educated to help those coming from a variety of backgrounds and identities with needs concerning exclusionary acts like intimidation, micro and macro aggressions, discrimination, LGBTQ-related concerns or sexual violence.
