Green Dot

GD-FacebookGreen Dot is a movement, a program, and an action. The aim of Green Dot is to prevent and reduce sexual assault & relationship violence at UW by engaging students as leaders and active bystanders who step in, speak up, and interrupt potential acts of violence. The Green Dot movement is about gaining a critical mass of students, staff and faculty who are willing to do their small part to actively and visibly reduce power-based personal violence at UW.

No one  has to do everything, but everyone has to do something.

Green Dot is your individual choice to do something.
