What is Safe Space?
An area or person that is tuned in to peace-keeping and respectful treatment of people, regardless of personal bias. A safe space acknowledges that oppression, in all forms, exists and must be challenged – first by creating a climate where one can expect to be free of harassment. Next, having the ability to report incidence of LGBT and other bias harassment to caring individuals who will enforce the safe space. (Georgia Safe Schools Coalition)
