Safe Place Posters
Supporting 2SLGBTQ+ Students Through Safe Places
The University of Lethbridge Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Office is encouraging faculty and staff to support 2SLGBTQ+ students through the designation of offices as safe spaces with physical symbols.
By hanging the Safe Place poster in your window, door or office, you can signal to other members of our campus community that your place is safe–i.e., aligning with the values of inclusivity, respect and belonging. Placing a physical symbol in your space such as the Safe Place poster represents not only a responsibility, but an accountability to ensure your space is safe for all diverse students and employees on our campus.
Displaying a Safe Place poster recognizes a commitment to ensuring we all do the necessary work to learn, unlearn and address the systemic barriers faced by underrepresented or marginalized members of our campus community. It also aids in acknowledging one’s own privileges and the work needed to make all spaces safe and inclusive for all.
A special thank you to Kathryn DeLucia-Burk and Ulises Charles Rodriguez for their work on the Safe Place poster. You can print a copy of this poster below or pick up a copy at the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion office in A782.
