What is SafeZone?

SafeZone is a voluntary, small group training designed to help campus community members provide a supportive and inclusive environment for gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, intersex, queer, questioning and allied persons, as well as those in the process of defining their gender and/or sexuality.

SafeZone trainings are open for anyone no matter what their knowledge or comfort level. You are welcome to attend trainings to learn, to become a SafeZone identified ally or both. You can attend as many training sessions as you wish in order to learn. You are also welcome to request a training session for any group of 5 or more. Faculty, staff and students are welcome.

SafeZone trained individuals who want to self-identify as allies will receive a rainbow sign with their name on it. Please post the sign on your office door, on the door of your residence hall, or wherever appropriate to indicate that you are a safe person with whom to speak with about LGBTIQA issues.

Spring Training Dates TBA

To register for a training please contact Leigh-Anne Royster, Director of Inclusive Community Well-Being at lroyster@elon.edu.
