Safe Zone 2.0

The Safe Zone 2.0 program is designed to actively enagage existing Safe Zone Allies in conversations that will deepen their knowledge about Queer issues on campus and around the country.  These Brown Bag style talks will be conversations lead by experts that will help faciliate continuing education for Allies on campus as we try and to broaden the support for Queer individuals in our community.  Any individual who has attended a Safe Zone training in the past is welcome to attend these monthly meetings.  Allies are also encouraged to submit suggestions for future sessions by contacting the Multicultural Resource Center.

If you would like to participate in the Safe Zone 2.0 conversations and have not attended a Safe Zone training on the UNC Charlotte campus, please contact the Multicultural Resource Center to sign up for one of our open training sessions held throughout the academic year.  The dates, times, and locations of the trainings can be found in the text block on the right of the screen.
