SafeZone to host Becoming an Ally introductory training Sept. 17

Submitted by SafeZone

Registration code

Students, staff and faculty members are invited to become a SafeZone ally and continue to provide a safe and equitable environment for every member of our community by attending Becoming an Ally training from 12:30-2:30 p.m Tuesday, Sept. 17, in Room 227 at the K-State Student Union.

The program was created to easily identify persons, programs and services that have made a special commitment to enhancing the quality of the K-State environment.

Individuals are trained to become SafeZone allies who provide "safe zones" where individuals 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.

Register for the training.
