What I’ve learned:
- You always have somewhere to go if you need help
- People are struggling everywhere – even if you can’t see it
- Spend time with the people who make you feel the best
- Make yourself available to be talked to!
The MOST EFFECTIVE way to prevent violence and abuse is to ENGAGE bystanders.
We believe that for every act of violence — bullying, sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, teen dating abuse, domestic violence — THERE IS A MOMENT WHEN SOMEONE CAN STEP IN TO STOP IT.
This, in its essence, is the principle behind GREEN DOT.
