Safe Zone workshops to be held Feb. 17 to train new members

Two workshops for the Safe Zone Program at Case Western Reserve University will be held Feb. 17: one from 9 a.m. to noon, and another from 1 to 4 p.m. Both sessions will be held in Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences 320 B/C.

Participants only need to attend one session to become a Safe Zone Member. RSVPs are required and space is limited. RSVP to and indicate what session you would like to attend and whether you are a student, staff or faculty member.

The Safe Zone Program is a visible network of volunteers who are committed to creating a community of respect and dignity for lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning students, staff and faculty. Safe Zone makes it possible to easily identify individuals who are dedicated to an environment in which all people are free to thrive academically, professionally and personally.
