Green Dot Bystander Training
Make a difference in the prevention of violence through free Green Dot training for EFSC students, faculty and staff.
Informed by social change theory, The Green Dot strategy is a comprehensive approach to the primary prevention of sexual assault and violence that capitalizes on the power of peer and cultural influence. The model targets our EFSC community members as potential agents of social change.
In this workshop participants will:
- Engage in a basic education program that seeks to reduce power-based interpersonal violence
- Gain awareness in pro-active behaviors that establish intolerance of violence as the norm
- Practice skills that integrate moments of prevention within existing relationships and daily activities
- Develop ways to introduce new norms within their sphere of influence at EFSC & in the community
Each significant stride in human rights has been fueled by and built upon a social movement consisting of enough individuals simply raising their voices and saying, "This is no longer acceptable."
