Now imagine, each time someone makes a single choice to use their words or actions to hurt someone else, a small red dot appears in one of those spaces. Each red dot represents an act of interpersonal violence (sexual assault/violence, relationship violence, or stalking) or a choice to tolerate, justify or perpetuate this violence.
Creating a culture shift that stands for no tolerance of violent and harmful thoughts, actions, and behaviors require a solution. On our campus map, green dots are they solution. A green dot occurs when someone uses their actions, choices, or words to make it less likely that a red dot will occur. Anyone can do green dots to help prevent interpersonal violence on campus and make UCSB and the surrounding communities safer places
