Advocacy Center Studies Green Dot Program

The local rape crisis center is working on a proactive approach to violence along with all other centers in the state. The Advocacy and Support Center in Elizabethtown is taking part in the statewide research of the violence-prevention program Green Dot. The program, which asks bystanders of violent or potentially violent situations to intervene in safe and possibly non-confrontational ways, is being studied for its effectiveness at the high school level in decreasing the amount of incidents like bullying and dating violence.
