Who We Are

SafeZone Allies have undergone a 2 1/2 hour training program to serve as resources, referrals and someone to listen regarding gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans and queer (GLBTQ) concerns at University of Alaska Anchorage.

You can identify who is an Ally by noticing their SafeZone Ally window cling located on their doors or office areas.

Below we list SafeZone allies and their contact information as it becomes available. We will continue to offer more trainings to campus to make sure that UAA is an inclusive and safe place for all.
