Safe Zone


SafeZone flyer

The LGBTQ+ Resource Center Team has been working to update Safe Zone to accommodate the many realities and changes of the atmosphere towards queer & trans students on campus and nationwide. 

After much deliberation, meeting with students and staff to ask questions and gauge what education would be most supportive on U of A's campus, we have determined we will be moving towards a model of workshops that addresses what solidarity would look like towards the 2STLGBQIA+ community. Please see the details below on how to get signed up for our new programming:
