Safe Zone: Practice of Allyship Educational Workshops

safezonefall2020

The LGBTRC will be offering a new version of our Safe Zone: Practice of Allyship workshop this Fall 2020. To be serve the new virtual format and distance learning, Safe Zone has been broken down into three workshops for any of the UCI community to join. While attending all is not mandatory, we highly encourage folx to do so in order to help create their practice of allyship for the LGBTQ+ Community and to gather all educational material and resources offered throughout the three workshops.

  1. LGBTQ+ Vocabulary
    “This workshop is an introduction into the LGBTQ+ ‘alphabet soup,’ emphasizing important identities and experiences. Learn important vocabulary, the evolving language of identity, and tips to begin your practice of allyship to support the LGBTQ+ community.”
