We are here to help you

  • get your Safe Zone program off the ground
  • analyze and identify where your Safe Zone program could be improved upon
  • expand your educational offerings as a Safe Zone Program, LGBTQ resource center, community center, employee resource group, etc.

What to do

The first thing you should do is scroll up to our ready-to-rock curriculum (presented in our favorite color: rainbow) and download it. That way you can see what activities we think make the ideal 2-hour Safe Zone, get a few guiding tips and tricks, and get started on your own Safe Zone workshop. Then…

Explore our suite of activities

By clicking on the Activities tab you will be able to view all of the LGBTQ educational activities Sam and Meg have shared, detailed explanations of their learning outcomes, what supplies you need, and how to conduct each activity! They are organized by activity type, length, knowledge level, and how trusting your group needs to be.

Each of these activities can be…

  • viewed online;
  • copy and pasted (by clicking the button);
  • or you downloaded as a PDF (by clicking the button).
  • You’re also encouraged to share () or tweet () if you want others to find them, too!

Everything on the site is uncopyrighted, so use it however you’d like.

You can also use the Activity Finder on the right to browse activities by type, knowledge level, trust, length of time, category, and specific themes. Click on one of the items in the finder to see how it works. It’s like Zappos, but for social justice!
