What is a Safe Zone Ally?
A Safe Zone Ally fosters an atmosphere of support and celebration of LGBTQ individuals. Allies are NLU students, faculty, and staff who have successfully completed the Safe Zone training and choose to support and advocate with those who are LGBTQ. Allies take the pledge to be understanding, non-judgmental, and willing to provide acceptance and assistance regardless of sexuality, gender identification/expression or other differences. Safe Zone allies proudly display the NLU Safe Zone symbol as an identifiable source of support.
