The Brave Zone Network trains LVC students, faculty, and staff with the goal of creating an on-campus network of allies and members of the LGBT+ community.
The program educates members regarding how to address issues involving the community and how to advocate for peers, family members, and other acquaintances. A large portion of Brave Zone training focuses on education. Trainees are immersed in situations that members of the LGBT+ community often encounter so they will be able to understand the oppression the community experiences.
Training covers topics such as:
- pronoun usage and why it’s important
- understanding gender identity and gender expression
- sexual attraction versus sexual orientation
- romantic attraction
There are currently 150 members involved with the program, including students, staff, and faculty. Members can be recognized on campus by a door decal on their dorm, house, or office door.
