SAFE Zone, in the Department of Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs, invites you to participate in the Wildcats Make a Pact advanced workshop with the Center for Advocacy, Response and Education, or CARE, from 11 a.m.-noon Tuesday, April 4, in person at the Morris Family Multicultural Student Center.

This presentation aims to familiarize interested students, faculty and staff with CARE's Wildcats Make A Pact bystander intervention program. Interfraternity Council requires this program for all first-year fraternity members. Ideally, this program's participants will learn about the scope and impact of sexual and relationship violence, tips for de-escalation of dangerous situations and tools for non-violent intervention.

Care provides services for students, faculty, staff and administrators who have experienced sexual or relationship violence. Wildcats Make a Pact will provide students, faculty and staff with an overview of CARE's advocacy services and outreach programs. Participants will become familiar with CARE's staff, mission and philosophy while gaining information regarding the scope and impact of sexual and relationship violence among college students. Ideally, participants will leave this workshop with a better understanding of CARE's services, university policies and tips for supporting survivors.

Register online for the April 4 Advanced SAFE Zone workshop.

SAFE Zone creates educational opportunities to teach about discrimination around sexual orientation and other minoritized identities. The expanded SAFE Zone creates a more comprehensive and ever-evolving effort to fit the needs of current K-State community members. SAFE Zone allies acknowledge a variety of backgrounds and identities while teaching about navigating exclusionary acts like intimidation, micro and macro aggressions, discrimination, LGBTQ-related concerns and sexual violence.
