Metropolitan State University’s Women’s and LGBTQ Student Resource Center invites you to Ally Development Training. An ally is a member of the majority group who works to end oppression in their professional and personal life. Allies are also advocates for the minority population.

Seventy percent of first-year lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer college students consider leaving school out of fear from being bullied or harassed. However, Ally and Safe Space programs have been shown to be effective tools for helping LGBTQ students and staff feel safer and more included in college communities.

To register for the training, or for more information, contact the Women’s and LGBTQ Student Resource Center.
