Safe Zone

The Safe Zone program aims to create a visible network of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual (LGBTQIA) individuals and their allies by providing an avenue through which any member of the Saint Mary’s Community can show their support.

Safe Zone's purpose is to reduce homophobia and heterosexism on our campus and thereby make our campus a safer and freer environment for all members of our community.

This program also creates an educational experience through which students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to explore their personal identities, cultural identities, stereotypes, privilege, and what it means to be an Ally. The program is also designed to understand how these issues impact the Saint Mary’s and global community. After attending the Tier 1 and Tier 2 Safe Zone workshops participants have the choice to sign the Safe Zone Pledge and take a Safe Zone placard.
