University of Nevada Allies

Ally StickerOur goal is to make Safe Zone spaces visible across the University of Nevada, Reno campus so anyone can find allies when needed.  The Center aims to publish (with consent) the names and offices of individuals that sign the Ally Agreement (provided during the workshop) and pledge to creating an atmosphere of nurturance for LGBTQIA+ persons.
