Not in Our Town Bowling Green and the BGSU Office of Multicultural Affairs are hosting a program on Safe Zone Training: A Focus on LGBTQ+ and Ally Building. The program is Thursday, June 1, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Wood County District Public Library. The session is free and open to the public. The workshop will be conducted by Dr. Krishna Han, assistant director of the BGSU Office of Multicultural Affairs.

The workshop provides education concerning LGBTQ+ issues and creating a positive environment for LGBTQ+ people. The purpose of the workshop is to strengthen and expand a support network of allies for the Bowling Green LGBTQ+ community. Safe Zone training is important because increasing numbers of Bowling Green community members openly identify as LGBTQ+. The political landscape has also created new challenges for LGBTQ+ persons.
