Local Forum: ' Safe Spaces', Feb. 23rd at Florey's!

Florey's welcomes you to our discussion group!

***Thursday, February 23rd, 7:00pm-8:30pm***

We will be meeting to discuss the topic: Safe Spaces.

From Nico:

For those that don't know, a safe space is defined as:

"In educational institutions, safe-space (or safe space), safer-space, and positive space originally were terms used to indicate that a teacher, educational institution or student body does not tolerate anti-LGBT violence, harassment or hate speech, thereby creating a safe place for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students.The term safe space has been extended to refer to a space for individuals who feel marginalized to come together to communicate regarding their experiences with marginalization, typically on a university campus. The idea of safe-spaces has seen criticism on the grounds that it stifles freedom of speech."

I'm sure there will be plenty to talk about, and if not, here are two news stories on the matter to get the ideas flowing:
