Green Dot Bystander Intervention Training Program for Students

Green Dot teaches Aggies to be aware of potential violence around them and provides the skills, strategies, and tactics to use the power of peer influence to intervene appropriately and safely in high-risk situations. Green Dot will teach you how to become an active bystander when you witness acts of power-based personal violence. You will learn how to recognize situations which lead to violence, common barriers which keep people from taking action, and how to safely intervene in ways that are consistent with your personality and values.

“The Last Colony” Free Screening
Oct 24 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

The Texas A&M Puerto Rican Student Association invites you to a FREE screening of the Emmy Award-winning documentary, The Last Colony, with a presentation by the author, Juan Agustin Marquez. We also invite you to bring donations of supplies for the victims of Hurricane Maria. Please like us on Facebook for more details on our event and the donation drive!

Synopsis: In 1898, the United States invaded and colonized Puerto Rico as part of the Spanish American War. For 119 years the people of Puerto Rico have maintained a polarizing debate on the STATUS ISSUE that has been front and center of the political discourse on the Island. Puerto Ricans (American citizens since 1917) constantly dispute between the options of Statehood, Independence, and Commonwealth.

On November 6, 2012, the people of Puerto Rico held the fourth plebiscite in the Island’s history to try to redefine the political relationship with the United States. Weeks before the plebiscite vote, filmmaker Juan Agustín Márquez traveled back to his homeland and interviewed leading politicians, historians, sociologists, and economists to dissect the status debate in a multilayered conversation about the pros and cons of each option on the ballot.

His mission is to explain the status debate to the people of the United States, Congress, and the President, and bring the American people up to date on this century-old question: Will there be a change in status in America’s Last Colony?
