Sexual Assault Prevention Training Seminar at Tales 2017

21Nov

The workshop will engage participants in learning how to recognize concerning behaviors that could lead to sexual assault and other forms of violence, acknowledge barriers that make it difficult to intervene, and engage in realistic reactive and proactive bystander behaviors, ultimately resulting in the reduction of sexual assault in their bars. Participants will leave the workshop inspired to do their part to prevent violence and tools to engage others in their workplace to do the same. Led by Green Dot Etcetera, an organization committed to mobilizing communities to prevent violence, the workshop has been developed specially for bar professionals.

About Green Dot

Green Dot, etc. is an organization built on the premise that we can measurably and systematically reduce violence within any given community. We believe current research across disciplines, in combination with lessons learned from history, provides nearly all of the necessary puzzle pieces to create a successful model of violence prevention. Given this foundation of knowledge, we believe any group, committed to equipping themselves with the necessary skills and willing to let go of historically ineffective approaches, has the capacity to implement a successful violence prevention strategy. Though the primary mission of Green Dot, etc. is the reduction of power-based personal violence, we also recognize the inextricable link between effective prevention and effective intervention. As such, Green Dot, etc. includes, within its mission, the strengthening of intervention services and strategies across forms of violence.
