The Safe Zone Ally Program is a visible network of allies who are committed to creating a community of respect and dignity for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) individuals. The Safe Zone Ally Program makes it possible to easily identify individuals who are committed to creating an environment in which all people are free to thrive academically, professionally and personally.
