Safe Zone Advocate

UPDATE 9/2/21:  The LGBT Center will not offer Safe Zone Advocate trainings this year while we perform a curriculum audit. Safe Zone Friend will still be offered. Thank you for your understanding!

Building upon learnings from Friend, Safe Zone Advocate will explore how unconscious bias and microaggressions may create unsafe spaces for LGBTQ+ people and engage with scenarios to learn to respond to interpersonal bias.

Check Calendar for upcoming dates and times.

Group Safe Zone Requests

UPDATE 10/26/21: Greek Life organizations do not need to submit group Safe Zone requests. The LGBT Center will be offering Greek Life-specific Safe Zone trainings later this year.

Request a Safe Zone session for your student organization or department. As you make a request, please choose dates at least 4 weeks in advance to accommodate scheduling. Group coordinators are responsible for room reservations and taking RSVPs for the group. To request a Safe Zone for a CWRU-affiliated group, use this Google form.

Please contact Harry Hawkins, to request a Safe Zone Friend with your group from CIA, CIM, or another community organization.
