The goal of Safe Zone training is to provide a welcoming environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and ally (LGBTQA) persons. Safe Zone establishes an identifiable network of supportive people who can provide support, information and a safe place for LGBTQA persons within the WSU campus community. By attending these training individuals are committed to being a Safe Zone Ally in which bigotry and discrimination, specifically regarding LGBTQA persons, are not tolerated.
