Safe Zone for Students offers workshops designed to help students better understand the challenges facing their LGBT classmates, friends, family and co-workers. Students who complete the workshop will receive a rainbow wristband that signals their commitment to being more effective allies and advocates for LGBT people. Stay tuned for the latest news on upcoming Safe Zone events and workshops!
