Do Green Dots. Proactively communicate your commitment to preventing violence by having a conversation with a friend, putting a green dot on your door, wearing a Green Dot T-shirt, or changing your e-mail signature to make a statement against violence.
Do More Green Dots. Notice the red dots that happen around you. Use the 3Ds -- Direct, Delegate, and Distract -- to brainstorm realistic ways you could intervene. Make the choice to be an active bystander.
Join Us On Facebook. Join the University of Portland Green Dot Group and learn about all the latest news, events, and committed bystanders on campus.

Create a Green Dot Story.
Create a 90-second video telling the story of a Green Dot you saw or did. Maybe you
intervened, or maybe you saw a friend do an ingenious distraction. Use photos, stop-animation, or live-action drama. Have a story, but you aren't sure how to get started? We can help.
