Safe Space Training

 

Safe Space logo

The goal of the Safe Space Campaign is to identify and educate individuals who will affirm and support all people regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. People displaying the Safe Space symbol are committed to combating hatred and discrimination through assistance and support.

The Safe Space Training is four hours long.

In the training you will learn some basic LGBTQ+ terminology and ways to make your language more inclusive, identify some of the privileges of being a straight non-transgender person, discuss the coming out process, and go over some ways that you can be a better ally to LGBTQ+ students on your campus.

If you are wanting to become a trainer, there are three requirements that must be met:

  • First, anyone who wants to be able to train others must go through the four-hour training with a current facilitator.
  • Second, following the training, you will get an in-depth review of the training layout (including facilitator notes), and a Q&A.
  • Third, you will co-host a training with a current facilitator followed by a review session.

 

If you are not local to Baton Rouge, Louisiana:

This is typically accomplished over the course of two days (day one covers the first and second parts, and day two is part three). This comes with a flash drive pre-loaded with our Safe Space booklet, all training materials, and training certificates.  The cost of this training is limited to printing costs of the booklets and a hotel stay and travel reimbursements for the current facilitator (if outside of Baton Rouge). Other than the program materials and travel, there is no cost for the actual workshop, however, we would strongly encourage and appreciate a donation to our LGBTQ+ Project fund to help us sustain these programs well into the future.

When you are ready to request a training, please email LGBTQProject@lsu.edu or call 225-578-4339.
