Safe Place Training
A Safe Place is a confidential place free from homophobia, transphobia, bipohobia, and heterosexism where people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, transgender, genderqueer, non-binary, queer, or questioning can feel welcome, safe, and included.

(Un)Documented Student Ally Training
With a rising undocumented student population on campuses around the country, it is important to recognize the needs of this group, as well as the institutional hurdles that exist. The training will help participants understand the unique challenges that these students face. It also focuses on campus and community resources that are available. Join us for this interactive session in which we will highlight ways in which this population of students experience their higher education journey differently than others.
