What is Safe Zone Training?

The Safe Zone training was designed to create a safer, more welcoming and inclusive environment, to strengthen community responses to LGBTQ individuals seeking services and to encourage networking among allied professionals toward the goal of supporting the well-being of LGBTQ people.
