Green Dot is an anti-violence initiative aimed at decreasing and preventing the occurrence of power-based personal violence, including dating and domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault and other forms of harassment, threat and intimidation toward an individual. Green Dot at UP aims to promote a culture of Pilot Care by helping students understand the strategies and tools they can use to prevent power-based personal violence in their own ways on campus.

Students Against Sexual Assault (SASA)

The Students Against Sexual Assault (SASA) Organization aims to eliminate the culture of sexual violence within our campus community, by educating the campus about the issue of sexual assault; specifically regarding topics of consent, as well as through creating dialogue and proactive events. SASA hope to end many of the stigmas surrounding sexual assault; such as victim blaming, fear of reporting, and labeling of survivors.

Care for survivors of sexual assault (scroll to the bottom of the page, to view videos discussing the confidential health and counseling services that we offer to survivors of sexual assault and other interpersonal violence).

Contact SASA via email at sasa@up.eduFacebook or Instagram.
