Green Dot Bystander Training

The Problem

We know violence is a silent epidemic happening on our campus and in our community. Think of a map of West Chester, including the campus and the rest of the borough. Now, imagine red dots, appearing on the map, for every act of power-based violence. The timely warnings you read. The moment someone hits their partner. On our campus, 53 incidents of sexual misconduct were reported in 2013-2014. Nationally, 1 in 5 women experiences sexual assault in college. We know 1 in 6 men will experience sexual assault in their lifetime. Acts of power-based violence, like sexual assault, are affecting you and your peers on our campus.

A Solution

We don't have to accept these instances of violence. We can work together- men and women; faculty, staff, and students- to end power-based violence. Green Dots on the map are moments in time where someone stood up and said "I'm not ok with this." A moment where someone stopped two people from having sex without consent. A moment where someone checked in on a friend in an abusive relationship.

We know there are more people who have the potential to do Green Dots than people who do Red Dots. If everyone does just 1-2 Green Dots, we can work together to change the culture of power-based violence on our campus.

Green Dot Bystander Training sessions for the spring are completed. Opportunities for the fall will be posted soon!
