KENTUCKY WESLEYAN COLLEGE HOSTS "ALCOHOL AWARENESS WEEK" EVENTS
Owensboro, Ky. (Oct. 28, 2013) - The Kentucky Wesleyan College Student Government Association is hosting a number of events during "Alcohol Awareness Week" from Oct. 28 - Nov. 1, and the week's key event, "I Am a Green Dot," will take place Friday, Nov. 1, at noon in the Winchester Center Rotunda. Green Dot etc. is an organization built on the premise that we can measurably and systematically reduce violence within any given community. One KWC goal is to encourage students to take a stand against potentially dangerous situations leading to sexual assault. According to livethegreendot.com, "A green dot is any behavior, choice, word or attitude that promotes safety for all our citizens and communicates utter intolerance for violence." Participants in Green Dot events are encouraged to visualize a map of their community with red dots representing violence and green dots representing citizens who take a stand against violence. Activities throughout the week will promote alcohol awareness, including information about drinking and driving.
