Making Cal U Green with End V...one Green Dot at a time.
The End Violence Center (End V) is charged with addressing sexual, dating/domestic, and stalking violence within our campus community. End V accomplishes this in two main ways:
Prevention Education, Awareness & Trainings/Presentations
Imagine our campus map covered with red dots. Each red dot representing an act of violence – or a choice to tolerate, justify or perpetrate this violence. A red dot is a rape, a hit, or a threat. A red dot is an individual choice to do nothing when faced with a high risk situation. Violence on our campus is the accumulation of individual choice, moments, values, and actions made by all of us. It’s hard to know how many red dots are on our map, but we do know there have been enough to create a culture that sustains unacceptable rates of violence against our community. Violence is not limited to women, but impacts members of our community of both sexes and every race, background, sexual orientation, identity and ability.
Now imagine adding a Green Dot to the middle of all those red dots on our map. A Green Dot is any behavior, choice or action that promotes safety and communicates utter intolerance for violence. A Green Dot is pulling our friend out of a high risk situation or having a conversation with a classmate about how important this issue is. A Green Dot is wearing an End V t-shirt, attending Take Back the Night or choosing to Walk a Mile in Her Shoes. It’s checking in with a friend you are worried about, giving a speech on prevention and violence in class, writing a letter to the Cal Times to support victims. A Green Dot is simply your individual choice at any given moment to make our campus safer. Learn more through:
- Prevention education programs and events
- Trainings for staff, faculty, and campus organizations
- Presentations and guest lectures, tailored to meet the needs of specific audiences
