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. The Green Dot Media Kit offers some sample electronic files to help.
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.

Use the Green Dot Toolkit. The Green Dot team has developed a toolkit of suggestions on how to do proactive and reactive Green Dots in the office and the classroom. The Green Dot Media Kit is a complement to the toolkit, offering sample slides, logos, and other electronic media you may want to use. Take a moment to read them and find some Green Dots that work for you.
