Explore Addressing Power-Based Personal Violence

SJR State Green Dot

Green Dot is a Bystander Intervention Program that recognizes that most people care about the high prevalence of power-based personal violence but don’t have the tools to know how to be part of the solution. Green Dot invites individuals to reconsider their role in prevention while inspiring people to believe things can be different and their contribution matters.

SJR State partners with the Betty Griffin Center to provide Green Dot training in order to strengthen and sustain new behaviors that will ultimately lead to reducing or eliminating the amount of people that are affected by power-based personal violence (dating and domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking). The strategy involves students, faculty, and administrators in promoting a safe campus environment where violence is not tolerated.

What’s my role in violence prevention?

Whether you’re taking home a friend who has had too much to drink, explain that a rape joke isn’t funny, or getting security involved when someone is behaving aggressively, choosing to step in can affect the way those around you think about and respond to sexual and domestic violence.

Ways to get involved

Request an Overview Speech for your class, department, or club - A Green Dot Overview Speech is an opportunity for you to learn about Bystander Intervention and how individuals can engage in culture change through prevention.

Attend a Bystander Training - This interactive training seeks to empower participants to discover ways to be active bystanders and create a community that does not tolerate violence and recognizes that we all have a role to play in ending it.
