Green Dot Overview and Training with Lea Hegge
September 14, 2017 @ 11:45 am - 12:45 pm EDTfree
Join us in a Green Dot overview talk with Lea Hegge
Green Dot is an organization built on the premise that we can measurably and systematically reduce power-based personal violence (i.e. sexual assault, partner violence, stalking, and child abuse) within any given community.
The overview talk introduces basic elements of the Green Dot strategy, while using persuasive and inspirational language to engage participants in immediate action. This event is a great way to engage new participants to generate awareness and begin the process of behavioral change.
Green Dot Keene is a collaborative research project with UNH Prevention Innovations Research Center and Green Dot, etc. via a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention grant. Keene and Claremont are the two cities in New Hampshire receiving the intervention. A previous (research) Green Dot Community pilot project in Anchorage, AK, showed that power-based relationship violence was reduced by 35%.
