Building Allyship and Diversity in Jeffco (BADJ)
Jeffco CTC imagines Jefferson County to be a community where ALL people are included, supported, seen, heard, valued, celebrated, treated with dignity, respected, and loved. LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, multiracial, and folks of all identities will feel at home within County, will be connected to the community, will have a sense of belonging, and will know they are valued. Jeffco CTC wants every member of the community to be able participate fully, to receive resources and support to meet their needs, and to thrive. The BADJ project is working to make this vision a reality.
“Out for Safe Spaces” is a national initiative based on “Out for Safe Schools,” a program run by the LA LGBT Center, that supports adults who work with youth to visibly identify as trusted adults to LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and multiracial youth. Building Allyship and Diversity in Jeffco (BADJ) is Jefferson County’s iteration of the Out for Safe Spaces project, organized by Jeffco CTC in partnership with the LA LGBT Center.
The Out for Safe Spaces workgroup focuses on the promotion, implementation, and evaluation of the BADJ project. If you are interested in joining this workgroup, please visit this page.
