The mission of Trinity College's Safe Zone program is to create a more hospitable and welcoming environment for gay, lesbian, bisexual,transgender,questioning/queer and intersex (g/l/b/t/q/i) individuals on Trinity's campus by creating safe spaces for this community to seek information, resources and open-minded people. Part of a national project, Trinity's Safe Zone program was initiated by the Women & Gender Resource Action Center(WGRAC) in Spring, 2000. Over 300 faculty, staff, administration and students have participated in Safe Zone trainings, and display a Safe Zone sticker on their office/dorm door. These stickers are a visible reminder of the campus' progress towards the elimination of homophobia and discrimination based on sexual orientation.
