What is Safe Zone?
Safe Zone is a program implemented at various colleges and
universities across the country. It is designed to educate the
community about personal, sociological and political issues faced by
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning people. Through
education and advocacy, Safe Zone strives to foster a safe, affirming,
and socially just environment for the LGBT community.
How to Become an Ally
An ally is someone who identifies her/his self as a
friend, supporter, resource and advocate for LGBTQ people. People who
have completed the Safe Zone Training program and have committed to
serving as an ally receive a Safe Zone sticker that can be placed on
doors, walls, etc. This then identifies the ally to LGBTQ or other
allies. To participate in Safe Zone Training, contact the Counseling
Center at 502.272.8480. Trainings are typically offered once per semester.
