By participating in the Safe Zone Program, one pledges that his/her Safe Zone is a place where lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and allies can:
- feel comfortable and safe in a confidential environment.
- express any issues and concerns in an atmosphere of acceptance and support.
- access informational and educational resources including: organizations, phone numbers, web sites, and books.
Phase 2 Training Safe Zone: Phase 2 training is a case study-based, application-focused session. Participants will gain the tools they need to not only provide resources, but to become an active participant in making EIU's campus a more supportive, inclusive, and affirming place for LBGTQA+ people. Completion of Phase 2 will result in becoming an identified Safe Zone Ally.
Phase 3 Training Safe Zone: Phase 3, Transgender 101, gives participants a 101 session on terminology, microagression, privilege, and how to serve as better allies to transgender individuals and students.
