Be a part of the effort to end violence

ONE GREEN DOT

at a time.

The Strategy

Green Dot is a nationally recognized strategy focused on preventing power-based personal violence – sexual violence, partner violence, child abuse, elder abuse, bullying, and stalking. The strategy is based around the belief that each one of us holds power as bystanders to actively prevent violence and shape our community norms.

What is a Green Dot? The Green Dot strategy draws its name from the image of a map covered in red dots representing a terrible epidemic. In this image, a red dot represents any act of power-based personal violence. Green dots are just small, individual, manageable actions people can make to make it less likely that red dots show up on our community map. A green dot could be intervening to stop a high risk situation (what we call a red dot) or influencing our community norms through simple words and actions. The ultimate goal is to outnumber and displace all the red dots in our community so that we eventually have more green than red.

Green Dot GC/KY is proud to be implementing this strategy in the Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, and Buffalo Trace areas. Women’s Crisis Center provides this comprehensive violence prevention training for high schools, community groups, businesses, organizations, and middle schools located in Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, and Buffalo Trace. We are also implementing Green Dot at all Gateway Community and Technical College campuses.

It is our solid belief that if we want to prevent violence, we need to get as many people on board as possible. No matter who you are, you can be a part of the solution. Put a green dot on the map today!
