This is a Safer Space

“A safer space is a supportive, non-threatening environment that encourages open-mindedness, respect, a willingness to learn from others, as well as physical and mental safety. It is a space that is critical of the power structures that affect our everyday lives, and in which power dynamics, backgrounds, behavior and how these things affect others are prioritized. It’s a space that respects and understands survivors’ specific needs. Everyone who enters a safer space has a responsibility to uphold the values of the space.”
