The LGBTQ+ Allyship training for Stevens Point and surrounding community members is an introduction to the knowledge, skills, and dispositions we need to create Safe Zone spaces.

Each of us has an identity based on our background, including our gender, sexuality, race/ethnicity, age, mental health, disability, education, socioeconomic status, veteran status, etc. This combination is unique to each of us.  We call that uniqueness our intersectionality. Unfortunately, many backgrounds have been marginalized against and even targeted with violence in the past and today. We create Safe Zone spaces to allow people to be their true selves, without fear of such threats.

By completing this training, you open your door as a supportive ally. You don't need to be an expert to be a committed ally to the LGBTQ+ community.

Learning Outcomes

If you bring sufficient ability and apply reasonable effort to this workshop, you will improve your abilities to:
