Practical Tools to Prevent Power-Based Violence That Affects Us All

Practical Tools to Prevent Power-Based Violence That Affects Us All   

The CDC reports that more than 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men experienced sexual violence involving physical contact during their lifetime.  The trauma from violence can impact a survivor’s education, employment, and have a long-term effect on the survivor’s overall well-being.  SJR State and Betty Griffin Center are working together on implementing the Green Dot Strategy for prevention.  Join us to learn the Green Dot Strategy that gives you practical tools to permanently reduce rates of violence.  The strategy invites all faculty, staff, and administrators at SJR State to engage and interrupt situations that are imminently or potentially high-risk for violence. According to the CDC, this strategy has a greater than 50% reduction in frequency of sexual violence perpetration and has been implemented at Vanderbilt, the University of Virginia, and the University of Kentucky. Join us for a brief overview as together we create a culture where dating violence, sexual assault and stalking are discussed openly, but never tolerated!

Presenters: Jeff Gatlin and Kenlie Kubart, Betty Griffin Center
