Creating Safer Spaces


The Rainbow Optimist Club offers an original workshop for community organizations, businesses and individuals called Creating a Safer Space for the 2SLGBTQI+ Communities.​


A safe space is a place or environment in which a person can feel confident that they will not be exposed to discrimination, criticism, harassment, or any other emotional or physical harm.  

The goal is to teach people how to create a safer space, a space where people can find themselves represented and reflected, and where they understand that all people are treated with respect, dignity and are included.


People and organizations that have completed the workshop can offer a space, home or community:

  • that is more positive and safer;

  • where the people/staff have been trained to understand 2SLGBTQI+ issues and needs; 

  • and that understands the challenges and stigma faced by the 2SLGBTQI+ community and their families.
