WOW! “Safe spaces” are meant for students to have a spot where they can safely go to get away from judgement.

“For our allies: we do appreciate your voices and commitment to dismantling racism and homophobia,” says Tongues Untied’s U of M page.

The post continues, “Tongues Untied is a space that was created by and for indigenous people and people of color who identify as queer and/or trans. If you identify as a queer and/or trans indigenous person or person of color, we welcome you to take part in our discussions.”
A video for Tongues Untied is available on the Office for Equity & Diversity’s YouTube channel.
