Safe Zone Training


safe-zone

Safe Zone - Safe Zone Training is a 3-hour workshop aimed at creating safe spaces/zones on campus in people, organizations, and offices/departments. At the end of each training, individuals get "Safe Zone Stickers" which they can put on office doors/windows, water bottles, binders, laptops, etc., to show that they are safe spaces for LGBTQ students, staff, and faculty.

We have open Safe Zone trainings scheduled for the Spring 2019 semester. Email the PRIDE Center at pride@csus.edu if you have questions or would like reserve space in the training.

In-Queer-Y Panels


In-Queer-Y Panels – The PRIDE Center offers a number of LGBTQ+ educational panels. These panels provide opportunities for folks to learn from a group of people about the LGBTQ community directly from members of the community. Each panel usually has a specific topic, and is moderated by staff from the Center. Panels are made up of members of the community on and off campus. Each panel consists of about 20 minutes of panel introductions and story-telling, and Q&A with the audience.

We have several open panels scheduled for the Spring 2019 semester. Email the PRIDE Center Coordinator, Melissa Muganzo ( muganzo@csus.edu ) if you have questions or need special accommodations.
