Next training date: October 10, 2014
One of Cerritos College's core values is "celebrating diversity in people, philosophies, cultures, beliefs, programs and learning environments." The Safe Zone Program is an extension of this value. Therefore, the Safe Zone Network is a group of community college members who are committed to addressing issues of importance and safety to the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning/Queer) community through education and advocacy. Members of the Safe Zone Network participate in a four-hour introductory workshop on issues of awareness and resources for the LGBTQ community. Once members have completed training, they will receive a Cerritos College Safe Zone sticker to display, so students will be aware who they can safely approach to ask questions, discuss any issues they may face, or be referred to resources that can assist them.
