Green Dot Jeopardy. Tues, Feb. 16, 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Green Dots are small, intentional actions anyone can take to influence culture change on our campus. Some Green Dots are reactive – actions you can take if you witness a potentially violent situation – and some Green Dots are proactive – actions you can take at any time to educate yourself, your friends and make your commitment to ending violence clear. Come play Green Dot jeopardy! Learn about green dots, red dots, and bystander intervention strategies for a chance to win prizes from the RISE office. Co-sponsored by MSA and LGBTQIA Programs and Services. Meeting ID: 990 1342 8695; Password: greendot
