What is Green Dot?

Our goal is to make Greater Grand Forks a place where violence is not tolerated

and where everyone does their part to keep each other safe.

Green Dot is a bystander intervention strategy. Visualize an image of Greater Grand Forks. In this image, imagine a bunch of tiny red dots. Each red dot is a single choice to cause harm to another person.


The solution to reducing this kind of violence is the green dot. A green dot is any behavior, choice, word or attitude that promotes safety for everyone and communicates intolerance for domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and child abuse. A green dot is simply your individual choice at any given moment to make our community safer.
