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.

Why?

Learn to be an Active Bystander to make our community safer.


Most of us can think of times we saw something happening or had a feeling that some relationship wasn't quite right... But do we have the tools to help divert violence, get help or support a victim?

  • Green Dot tools are effective without putting people in danger

  • The Green Dot Strategy has proven to reduce violence in communities by 40%

  • You can be part of a cultural shift that makes violence unacceptable and offers a positive role for everyone
