Students, faculty and staff are invited to attend the July 23 LGBTQIA+ SafeZone Workshop. The workshop will take place virtually on Thursday, July 23 from 10-12 p.m. MDT.

The SafeZone program is designed to educate UCCS students, faculty, and staff about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities. Learning outcomes include awareness of terminology, the coming out process and beginner-level strategies to being a supportive ally of the LGBTQIA community. This discussion will have a special Pride Month flair.

“This topic is especially important to consider now, acknowledging that not long ago the Supreme Court made a historic ruling that protects LGBTQIA people from discrimination in the workplace,” said Jesse Perez, program director of the LGBT Resource Center at MOSAIC in a recent letter to campus.

“The reality is that what happens on national and even international stages can directly impact our students and influence how they navigate their LGBTQIA identities as a college student. Your involvement with our office and efforts contribute to raising awareness and creating a more safe and inclusive learning environment.”
