Safe Space

Safe Space

The purpose of Safe Space is to provide a safe haven, a listening ear, and visible support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) people at UMMSM. This is a 1.5-hour interactive workshop that provides participants a chance to learn about issues affecting the LGBTQ community, and provides tools for participants to be informed and effective allies as they go about their daily lives. Our goal is to combat homophobia and heterosexism, and to create a supportive and nurturing environment on the UMMSM campus, where diversity is valued and appreciated.

After completing the Safe Space workshop, participants are given a Safe Space sticker/magnet that identifies them as ‘someone who is sensitive, supportive, and respectful to the LGBTQ community as well as those questioning their sexual orientation.’ Participants will display the sticker in their workplace on campus.
