The Safe Space Ally Workshops are the LGBT Resource Center's initiative to educate people who support LGBTQ individuals within our campus and global community. The workshops are divided into two, two-hour sessions: Part I- Creating Affirming Spaces and Part II- Ally Development.
Unlike more visible under-represented groups, lesbian, gay, bisexual,transgender, and queer identified (LGBTQ) persons cannot be readily identified. Likewise, there is no easy method of identifying persons supportive of LGBTQ people. The Safe Space Ally Workshop strives to provide a way for Allies, no matter their sexual orientation or gender identity, within the Northwestern University community to prominently identify themselves. The program advances NU's goal of creating a campus community in which everyone is treated with respect and dignity and may participate holistically in the collegiate experience. Please consider this your invitation to participate.
