Learn about issues affecting LGBTQ+ people, homophobia, and heterosexism, and the benefits and responsibilities of being an Ally.
The Allies Advance program is now called 'Safe Zone,' and has two distinct workshops both 3 hours in length. The Level 1 class will be called LGBTQ+ 101 and can still be used to meet an elective requirement for the SDES Diversity Certificate Series.
The Level 2 class will be called Safe Zone Advocate Training. LGBTQ+ 101 is a mandatory pre-requisite to attend this class. Upon completion of this training, participants can officially identify themselves as a Safe Zone Advocate which will be designated by a placard/pin/patch with the new logo.
Individuals who have already completed Allies training prior to Summer 2013 are welcome to keep their old placard identifying them as an Ally, but must attend both workshops of the new format in order to receive the Safe Zone Advocate designation. Individuals cannot swap out their old placard with a new one, as the material has been significantly changed and expanded from previous years.
