Safe Zone Ally Training Sessions: 2016-2017

safe zoneCuyahoga Community College cares about ending all forms of oppression. A Safe Zone is considered a space where everyone will be listened to and respected regardless of sexual orientation/gender identity or expression. The Safe Zone logo is a way to designate a “safe space,” whether on an office window, door, or on a button. People should feel comfortable in this open and affirming space to openly discuss LGBTQ/Ally (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, & Questioning) related issues. Participants will become aware of issues of concern to folks of all sexual orientations/gender identity & expressions, and become certified as Safe Zone Allies if they choose. Other interactive topics covered will be: review of LGBTQ research/data, awareness building activities, learning relevant resources, and exploring how to discuss related topics with others. Sign up via TEC and join the 400+ Certified Safe Zone Allies. Students who would like to attend may email
