The Safe Space Development Group
For the Rancho Santiago Community College District (RSCCD), Safe Space discussions began with Phi Loan Le and Yuri Betancourt in 2007. Then, in 2008, Susana Salgado joined in the preparation for the first Pilot that took place in Spring 2010. In August 2011, Corinna Evett joined Phi Loan and Susana, and together, they offered RSCCD Safe Space Ally trainings for SAC/SCC faculty/staff each academic year. Then, in 2014, Tiffany Gause joined the Safe Space Development Group.
As the demand for Safe Space ally training increased, the Safe Space Development Group decided to continue to meet each semester, but rather than hold joint college trainings, in 2016, each college began holding individual trainings to meet each college's training demands.
As the SCC Safe Space Coordinators, Corinna Evett and Tiffany Gause work to achieve their goal of holding two Ally trainings each spring with two Ally follow-up meetings each fall. They also hope to begin holding Student Leadership LGBTQI Ambassador workshops in the near future.
Not only are we members of your Safe Space Development Group, but we are also trained allies! Therefore, if you ever have any questions,
please do not hesitate to visit or contact us.
