Dear representatives,

I hope your summer is going well! The Academic & Student Life Committee is pleased to announce the following COGS events (in addition to the June 19 meeting) for June 2017:

  *   Saturday, June 17 @ FSU Rez (time/details TBA by Friday): COGS Social Gathering
  *   Saturday, June 24, 10 am - 4 pm: COGS Green Dot Training. Lunch is provided. You must register here<http://knowmore.fsu.edu/education-prevention/green-dot/> to attend this workshop.
     *   "
Green Dot is a bystander intervention initiative that recognizes that most people care about the high prevalence of power based personal violence but don’t have the tools to know how to be part of the solution. Green Dot seeks to change the culture by activating people that may not have been directly impacted by power based personal violence. We recognize that power based personal violence prevention is everyone’s responsibility.

The initiative uses the concept of Green Dots (actions taken to eliminate/prevent Red Dots) displacing Red Dots (potential/real acts of violence). Actions can be reactive-responding to a Red Dot in the moment, or proactive- preemptively demonstrating a Green Dot. According to the CDC, this program has a greater than 50 percent reduction in frequency of sexual violence perpetration and has been implemented at Vanderbilt, University of Virginia, and University of Kentucky." -FSU Green Dot homepage

We hope to see you at one or both of these events!

All best,
