Safe Space Training


Hosted by the LGBT Resource Center


Date:Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Location: Commonwealth Room, Newcomb Hall, University of Virginia
Time: 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.


The Safe Space network is made up of University faculty, staff, and students who are committed to being allies of the LGBT community. All members complete a two-hour training that consists of information about the LGBT population and how to be an ally.

At the end of the training, participants are given a distinctive rainbow-colored sticker that reads, “This symbol identifies someone who is sensitive and supportive to lesbian, gay, bi, and trans people, as well as those questioning their sexual orientation."

These stickers can be seen all around Grounds to visibly designate safe spaces.

Open to the first 40 registrants.
