The purpose of this program is to reduce homophobia, transphobia and heterosexism, etc etc on our campus and thereby to make our campus a safe and free environment for all members of our community - regardless of sexual orientation or gender identification. By agreeing to become a participant in Safe Zone Project, you agree to undergo training and to serve as a resource for people seeking clarification of issues of sexual diversity.

After the training sessions you will receive resource materials and a Safe Zone placard used to indicate that they have been through the training and become an “ally.” The Safe Zone placard is a message to LGBT individuals that you are an understanding, supportive, and trustworthy individual. LGBT individuals will know they can come to these allies for help, advice, or just to talk with someone who is supportive of their sexual orientation.

Please RSVP to Sarah Holmes at sholmes@usm.maine.edu or phone 780-5767 (sessions with fewer than 5 people may be postponed or rescheduled).
