New to Green Dot?

The aim of UW Green Dot is to prevent and reduce power-based violence at UW by engaging students, faculty, and staff as active bystanders who step in, speak up, and interrupt potential acts of violence. The Green Dot movement is about gaining a critical mass of the UW community, who are willing to do their small part to actively and visibly reduce power-based personal violence at UW. The program is based out of the UW office of Health and Wellness, SafeCampus, and other campus departments.
