You are directly interacting with people involved in the situation and letting them know that you are concerned.
When you recognize a red dot situation and you may be uncomfortable saying something because of your barriers, just ask for support from someone else.
The focus of this approach is diversion. If you see a situation and divert the attention of the people in the situation.
Green Dot is a bystander intervention initiative that recognizes that most people care about the high prevalence of power based personal violence but don't have the tools to know how to be part of the solution. Green Dot seeks to change the culture by activating people that may not have been directly impacted by power based personal violence. We recognize that power based personal violence prevention is everyone's responsibility.
Green uses the concept of displacing Red Dots (potential/real acts of violence) with Green Dots (actions taken to eliminate/ prevent Red Dots). Actions could be reactive or proactive. Reactive Green Dots are in the moment and immendiately responding to a Red Dot. A proactive Green Dot are actions we take to let others know we do not tolerate violence in our UCF community.
