Sarah Holmes has kindly offered to hold a Safe Zones Training for our USM Veterans, Servicemembers, and Military Family Members on Monday, April 7th from 1:00-2:30 p.m. in 327 Luther Bonney.

The mission of the Safe Zone Project at the University of Southern Maine is to visibly identify and support those members of the University community who are safe and supportive contacts for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and queer students, staff and faculty.

This training is a safe space for you to ask questions and learn about how to support your peers!

Those who knew Spc. Christopher D. Gelineau describe him as a friendly, reliable young man who loved working with computers & quote; He was a very nice boy. He was patient and quiet; said his aunt, Pam Gelineau. Gelineau, 23, of Portland, Maine, was killed April 20 in an explosion outside Mosul, Iraq. His Army National Guard unit was based in Portland. Gelineau grew up in Vermont and moved to Portland to attend the University of Southern Maine. He was one semester shy of a degree in information and communications technology when he deployed to Iraq in March 2004.
