Safe Zone LGBTQIA+ Workshops
"How wonderful is it that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." Anne Frank
The Safe Zone workshop promotes awareness of the LGBTQIA+ community. This two-hour workshop aims to educate the Stockton community on LGBTQIA+ issues and terminology, with the result of improving the environment for our students, faculty and staff who identify as LGBTQIA+. This workshop will also be the starting point for building a network of support within our community.
The Safe Zone Project will address many concerns, issues, misunderstandings, and lack of information. There is a need for more discussion about the homophobia, hate speech, and diversity issues/concerns on many levels present on the Stockton University Campus. A place of higher education should be a place where everyone feels comfortable being themselves (regardless of personal identity). The campus has a responsibility to provide its students with a comfortable learning environment irrespective of their differences. Through programs like Safe Zone, we can make Stockton University a more supportive and comfortable environment for all people.
