Safezone Training

| February 6, 2014

The LGBTQA office of Northern Arizona University is holding safe zone training. The program is a dynamic, interactive session that includes activities and discussion around: inclusive language, the process of coming out, the power of the straight ally, understanding sexual identity, how to respond to homophobic/transphobic incidents, where to go for help and much more. This session will give participants the skills they need to provide support and to create environments that are safe, welcoming and inclusive. A SafeZone is a place where all people feel welcome and safe.  It may be a room, a car, or an entire college campus.  The Gay Alliance SafeZone program aims to increase the awareness, knowledge, and skills for individuals while addressing the challenges that exist when one wants to advocate for their LGBTQ peers, family members, friends and co-workers.

This training is great for providers, teachers, and individuals working with children and youth.
