WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:04.000 Every day in our world, our community, and even on our campus. 00:00:04.000 --> 00:00:08.000 There are acts of power based personal violence. 00:00:08.000 --> 00:00:13.000 Things such as stalking, dating violence, sexual assault, and rape, all place a red dot on our map. 00:00:13.000 --> 00:00:18.000 Even making the choice to ignore an act of personal violence. The choice to do nothing. 00:00:18.000 --> 00:00:21.000 To walk away, that moment of an action, is a red dot. 00:00:21.000 --> 00:00:24.000 We don't have to live in a map covered in red dots. 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:28.000 We can make a choice to intervene. A choice to put a green dot on our map. 00:00:28.000 --> 00:00:38.000 Each of us can create a green dot by intervening directly during a red dot situation, delegating and finding someone to intervene, or creating a distraction that pulls the power away from an act of voilence. 00:00:38.000 --> 00:00:40.000 Be direct. 00:00:40.000 --> 00:00:44.000 Delegate the situation. Cause a distraction. 00:00:44.000 --> 00:00:51.000 A green dot prevents a red dot from marking our map. We have a choice to stand up and say that violence is not acceptable to us or our community. 00:00:52.000 --> 00:00:58.000 Talk with friends and family about the importance of non violence. Announce a commitment to prevent violence on social networking websites. 00:00:58.000 --> 00:00:62.000 Or even wearing a green dot t-shirt can make our map green. 00:01:02.000 --> 00:01:09.000 You have a right, a choice, and the power to stand up against violence. 00:01:09.000 --> 00:01:13.000 Together we can make green dots out number the red. 00:01:13.000 --> 00:01:16.000 Together we can make our map green.
