The Citrus College LGBTQ+ Ally Training program is a campus-wide program committed to making Citrus College a safe, welcoming, and more inclusive environment for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ+) community. The Citrus College LGBTQ+ Ally program provides an opportunity for students, staff, and faculty to learn about LGBTQ+ vocabulary, terms, intersectionality within the community, systematic and institutional discrimination, how to ally for the LGBTQ+ community, and campus, local and national resources.
Through a mixture of activities, videos and discussions, participants will become more aware of the challenges that LGBTQ+ individuals face in their daily lives and how to be a supportive and effective ally. After completing the training, participants will gain the tools necessary to be an ally for the LGBTQ+ community* and will have the option to sign a petition, alleging their commitment to continue their work as an LGBTQ+ Ally. Participants will also receive a Citrus College LGBTQ+ Ally Training decal that can be displayed for the campus community to recognize you as an ally and will be added to a list that recognizes other people on campus who have taken the pledge.
Citrus College LGBTQ+ allies support brave spaces at Citrus College for LGBTQ+ individuals so they may thrive as students and employees.
