Green Dot, etc. is a national organization built on the premise that we can measurably and systematically reduce violence within any given community.

The effort was founded on the belief that current research across disciplines, in combination with lessons learned from history, provides nearly all of the necessary puzzle pieces to create a successful model of violence prevention. Given this foundation of knowledge, we believe any group, committed to equipping themselves with the necessary skills and willing to let go of historically ineffective approaches, has the capacity to implement a successful violence prevention strategy.

Though the primary mission of Green Dot, etc. is the reduction of power-based personal violence, the effort also recognizes the inextricable link between effective prevention and effective intervention. The mission includes a dedication to strengthening intervention services and strategies across all forms of violence.

Green Dot at Eastern Florida State College is funded by the Florida Department of Health in partnership with The Women's Center in Brevard.
