UAA's SafeZone is a campus-wide program designed to increase the overall campus community's understanding and awareness of issues faced by gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, allies (GLBTQA+) and other marginalized persons. We offer a visible message of inclusion, support, and advocacy through 2-hour Ally trainings, taking participants through a variety of activities aimed at expanding horizons and cultivating thoughts. Ally trainings help participants examine their thoughts and views while prepping them to become better allies for the GLBTQA+ community.
UAA SafeZone also offers 8-hour train-the-trainer courses, and a bi-weekly Lavender Lunch program. In addition, we hold bi-weekly meetings which are open to all to encourage awareness, discussion, and participation for those who wish to become more involved.
All of our events, including Ally and Train-the-Trainer trainings, are open to UAA students, staff, faculty and the surrounding communities.
SafeZone became a part of the UAA community in November 2010, and now has over 100 trained allies and nearly 50 trainers, comprised of current and former students, staff, faculty, and community members the Anchorage and Fairbanks communities.
