THIS IS OUR DATA
Over half (1 out of 2) UNR Students have experienced some form of power-based violence.
This includes dating violence, sexual assault, sexual touching, threats, or stalking
WHAT CAN WE DO
The answer is simple - do a green dot! We ALL need to play a part in preventing violence.
A red dot is an act of violence. A green dot is an act to prevent violence.
Examples of Green Dots:
Checking in - If you are at a party or event check in with your friends – come and leave together.
Creating a distraction – Spilling your drink, telling someone their car is being towed, asking your girlfriend you need her to go with you to the bathroom.
Get Help - Call the police or tell someone on campus who can help – it never hurts to just call!
PREVENTING VIOLENCE ONE GREEN DOT AT A TIME
Green Dot is a single moment in time that makes our campus, or community, and our lives safer. The Green Dot strategy believes that the safety of the community and our campus is greatly impacted by the individual choices that are made by the people living within it.
WHAT WE KNOW
We know that most people are good and that they will not commit any form of power-based personal violence (dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, etc) in their lifetime, but we also know that sometime during their life they might witness those forms of violence being played out in front of them.
DOING SOMETHING OR NOTHING
That becomes our choice as a campus, to either do something or do nothing and let the violence continue. Green Dot provides students with skills to safely intervene so that violence will no longer be tolerated or accepted, which makes our campus safer one Green Dot at a time.
“No one has to do everything… Everyone has to do something”
