Sign up for Green Dot Bystander Training – Saturday April 27th

UW students,
We need your help to reduce power-based violence on campus! We believe that natural student leaders are in a position to use peer influence to change the world we live in. If you believe that one person experiencing violence is too many, then Green Dot will give you the skills to do something about it.
The next FREE Green Dot Bystander Training for students is on Saturday April 27th, 2013 from 10:00am-4:00pm in Alder Hall, Room 107.
