Green Dot Bystander Training on February 1st

UW Students,
We need your help to reduce power-based violence on campus! We believe that natural student leaders, like yourself, are in a position to use peer influence to change the world we live in. If you believe that one person experiencing acts of violence is too many, then Green Dot will give you the skills to do something about it.
