What is Green Dot?
Green Dots are choices & actions that prevent violence!
It is a national program implemented in communities, high schools, colleges, and Air Forces bases around the country. The Green Dot Strategy helps develop two key cultural norms:
*Personal violence will not be tolerated
*Everyone does their part to maintain a safe community.
The tools presented in the workshops include reactive ways to intervene in potential violence and proactive ways to promote violence reduction. These options are designed to be safe and flexible, so there is something everyone can do. This program empowers the largest segment of society, the bystanders. When enough bystanders take a moment in time to prevent violence, the effort creates a cultural shift that makes communities safer.
