Supporting LGBTQ+ populations requires that you first understand the diversity within the community. Safe Zone trainings allow you to develop your knowledge and understanding of LGBTQ+ individuals. For this week’s assignment, you have an opportunity to participate in Safe Zone activities and reflect on your experience. You are asked to complete this assignment with a partner or small group of your choosing to have opportunity to dialogue with others, an essential component of Safe Zone trainings.

With at least one other person (e.g., classmate, coworker, friend, family member), use the facilitator’s guide to complete the activities in the participant packet.
Option 2: If there is an organization that provides Safe Zone trainings for your community, you may attend an in-person or virtual training.
