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

We know that far too many people are being hurt by sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. If we’re truly going to reduce the number of people being hurt, we have to create a cultural shift.

Bystander Intervention programs are proactive, skill-based programs that encourage all members of a community to do their part to both prevent harm and intervene in situations when another person could be harmed. “No one has to do everything, but everyone has to do something.”

In 2018, JMU adopted the Green Dot violence prevention strategy, an evidence-based interactive program focused on building skills to intervene in and prevent power-based personal violence in our community. Green Dot uses a community mobilization strategy, involving faculty, staff, and students in prevention.

Green Dot programs offered:

For Students

                  Overview Talk (50-60 minutes)

                  Bystander Training (4-6 hours)

For Faculty/Staff

                  Overview Talk (90 minutes)
