The Safe Zone Advocates training is the second in the series and was created to further individual knowledge and understanding of LGBTQ+ issues.

Training Objectives:

  • Increase insight into personal and cultural biases
  • Increase awareness of the impact these biases have on interactions¬†with LGBTQ+ individuals
  • Increase comfort in addressing systemic oppressions that affect LGBTQ+ individuals
  • Increase ability to identify micro-aggressions that impact LGBTQ+ individuals
  • Increase comfort in discussing power, privilege, and oppression
  • Acquire skills and knowledge to increase ability to advocate
  • Increase understanding that being an ally is an ongoing and active process
