Staff Sgt. Lacey Matthews, 403rd Aircraft Maintainance Squadron crew chief, explains reactive and proactive Green Dots during a training class Nov. 5 at Keesler Air Force Base, Miss. Green Dot is the U.S. Air Force's program to help raise awareness of and prevent sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking.(U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Heather Heiney) Green Dot sparks culture change
Sexual assault strips away a person’s humanity. It violates their most essential and basic human right – the right to control their own body, to feel safe in their own skin. And far too often the victim blames themselves for something that shouldn’t ever be considered their fault by anyone. Ever. By anyone. Green Dot is a national program adopted by the Air Force, which not only aims to shift that perception, but to give people real tools they can use when they find themselves in a bystander situation.
