To become a Citrus Ally, Citrus College faculty, staff and students participate in a three-hour workshop where participants will learn about heterosexual privilege, campus and community resources, and how to be supportive to members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ) community.
After completion of the training, participants have the option to display the Citrus Safe Zone symbol as a signal to the campus community, and especially LGBTQ individuals, that they maintain a safe and affirming environment.
After completion of the training, participants will receive a Safe Zone decal and will be equipped with the tools necessary to:
• respond in an appropriate, affirming and supportive manner to LGBTQ individuals;
• know resources and/or where to find them; and
• examine his/her own attitudes, behaviors, and values, and challenge others to do the same.
