Valley City Green Dot, a violence prevention program, is hosting their next Bystander Training on Saturday, January 25, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. (lunch provided) at the Grandstay Hotel (271 Winter Show Rd, SW, Valley City).
The Valley City Green Dot training allows adults to walk through everyday scenarios, to gain and practice skills to address those scenarios, and to work together to end violence in our community. Please call or email if you would like to attend – (701) 729-2995, VCGreenDot@gmail.com.
Valley City Green Dot, through the North Dakota Department of Health and a grant from the Center for Disease Control, is a violence prevention program. It’s part of the worldwide movement to end sexual violence, dating/domestic violence and stalking in communities.
Green Dot seeks to engage all members of the community as bystanders who can identify behaviors that lead to harm (red dots) and respond in a way that will make it less likely the harm occurs or gets worse (green dots). It focuses on the actions everyone can take on a daily basis to set a new norm that violence is not tolerated, and everyone is expected to do their part in contributing to a safer community.
