About this Event
Safe Zone Allies Student Network
The Safe Zone Allies Student Network welcomes students of any sexuality and/or gender identity who are interested in and committed to addressing issues and topics of importance to the LGBTQ+ community. Students in the network meet weekly to learn about and discuss LGBTQ+ history, gender and sexual identities, community cultures and norms, the laws and policies that affect the LGBTQ+ community, heteronormativity and oppression, and more.
Through participation in this network, students gain valuable skills and practical knowledge that will help them in developing their LBGTQ+ advocacy and allyship. After attending four sessions, students will receive their Safe Zone Allies backpack pin, and after eight sessions they will earn a Safe Zone Allies sticker and certificate, which signify their personal devotion to their role as an LGBTQ+ ally.
Students interested in the Safe Zone Allies Student Network may register on HogSync, and following approval of registration, they will be added to the Microsoft Teams portal where virtual weekly meetings can be accessed, as well as where network members can interact with each other and access additional resources. One meeting per month will be held in a hybrid style, with the option to attend in-person or remotely, and all other meetings will be virtual.
Meetings are held every Monday evening from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. We hope to see you there!
If you have any questions, please contact the Safe Zone Allies Student Network Student Coordinator, Karleigh Ferrell, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
