Safe Zone

The Safe Zone program aims to create a visible network of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI) individuals and their allies by providing an avenue through which any member of the Vanderbilt Community can show their support.  This program also creates an educational experience through the Safe Zone Workshop. The three hour workshop encourages student, faculty, and staff to explore their personal identities, cultural identities, privilege, and what it means to be an Ally. After attending this workshop you have the choice to take a Safe Zone placard. The visible Safe Zone placards indicate that this individual has received training and is willing and able to engage around issues of sexual and gender identity.

If you have any questions or would like more information about the Safe Zone Program, please contact Chris Purcell chris.purcell@vanderbilt.edu
