Green Dot

What is Green Dot?

A green dot is any choice, behavior, or attitude that promotes safety for everyone and communicates utter intolerance for power-based personal violence in our Iowa State University community. A green dot is anything you do to make our community safer.

Why the Green Dot?

A green dot symbolizes a single moment in time that can be used to end perpetration or support victims of power-based personal violence. Through your words, choices, and actions in any given moment, you can add a green dot to our map and make a difference. By interrupting potential incidence of power-based personal violence, or a red dot, you increase community safe for everyone. If each of us adds 1 or 2 or 5 or 100 green dots, we will reduce the perpetration of violence -- one green dot at a time.
