Safe Zone Placard

Our Safe Zone training sessions educate the SIU Carbondale Community about LGBTQ issues. Participation as an ally in the SIU Safe Zone program helps to create a campus that is inclusive and affirming.  Thousands of Safe Zone participants at SIU are committed to social justice and understand the importance of diversity in the SIU community.LGBTQ people and straight allies are encouraged to attend a Safe Zone Training Workshop. Upon completion of the workshop, participants have the option of becoming a Safe Zone member. Both the workshop and membership are voluntary and free. Safe Zone workshops can be arranged for any office or campus organization who wishes to host one.
