Green Dot is a violence prevention strategy designed to mobilize students, faculty, and staff to recognize, react, and intervene during instances of interpersonal violence including sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking.
A green dot represents any behavior, choice, word, or attitude that interrupts violence or promotes safety by communicating an intolerance for interpersonal violence. Your Green Dot might look like pulling a friend out of a risky situation, responding to a victim-blaming statement with words of support, coordinating a training for your student org, or displaying an awareness poster in your office.
Through education, awareness and skills practice, Green Dot participants are equipped to react and intervene resulting in the ultimate reduction of violence. To prevent violence, Niners can make individual choices to actively intervene and speak out against harmful behavior. Together, this combined effort leads to a large shift in campus culture.
Green Dot is coordinated by the Center for Wellness Promotion in partnership with the Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage.
