Not on Our Grounds: One Green Dot at a Time
The University has been working for some time to develop and implement programs aimed at ending sexual violence and interpersonal violence in our community through a series of awareness campaigns and prevention efforts. In connection with this mission, the University has partnered with the organization Green Dot etc. to bring their comprehensive violence prevention strategy to UVa.
Green Dot is built on the premise that in order to measurably reduce power-based personal violence, a cultural shift is necessary. In order to create a cultural shift, a critical mass of people will need to engage in new behaviors that will make violence less sustainable in our community. Those new behaviors are Green Dots.
The Green Dot program is officially launching on Thursday, March 26 in the Amphitheater from 1 to 4 PM. For more information on the Green Dot and other initiatives, visit http://notonourgrounds.virginia.edu.
