Preventing Sexual Violence On and Off The Campus: The Green Dot Project
Hosted by Dr. Suzanne B. Phillips
Whether addressing campus sexual violence or other forms of power-based violence like partner abuse, bullying, stalking, etc. the national and internationally used program, Green Dot, etc. moves us from awareness to action. In this episode, Jessey Lyons, Associate Director of Green Dot turns our attention to reducing campus sexual violence. She recognizes that “It is not that people don’t care—they don’t know what to do.” Accordingly, she discusses training, tools and strategies that we can use on or off campus to make prevention and intervention possible. She is joined by college senior, Juliette Verrengia who shares her insights and experience as part of the team that has implemented The Green Dot at Connecticut College. We are aware. Now we need action.
