​Details



The Community Safe Zone 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 Safe Zone training and displaying the Community Safe Zone Placard, you open your door as a supportive ally. You communicate that others can openly confide in you about their identities and experiences. You don't need to be an expert to display the placard. However, your placard indicates you commitment to allyship with the LGBTQ+ community, which we will explore further in the Safe Zone training session.

Learning Outcomes

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

  • Use inclusive language about gender and sexuality
  • Describe the differences between gender identity, gender expression, sex, and sexuality
  • Identify challenges faced by trans, non-binary, and non-heterosexual folks
  • Help create more inclusive environments by being an ally to LGBTQ+ folks
