Bystander training movement reaches participation milestone at North Central College
Sep 3, 2015 4:54 PM - The Green Dot movement at North Central College in Naperville is approaching a crucial number of students, faculty and staff involved on campus. Its participation rate of nearly 10 percent signals a culture change, says Cindy Washburn, North Central College violence education and prevention coordinator. Green Dot is an innovative national social movement that works to make communities intolerant of power-based personal violence--domestic/dating violence, sexual assault, stalking--by engaging bystanders, who are trained to think and act in ways that foster this intolerance. It ultimately seeks to change the culture surrounding power-based personal violence.
