Raising a Red Flag!



Thumbnail image for Black-box.gifFrom Oct. 8-12, the Women's Center at Eastern hosted the Red Flag Campaign, a public awareness mission designed to promote the prevention of dating violence on college campuses. The Red Flag Campaign was launched in October 2007 on college and university campuses in Virginia before being launched nationally. The campaign was created using a "bystander intervention" strategy, which encourages friends and other campus community members to say something when they see warning signs for dating violence in a friend's relationship. Research indicates that in 21 percent of college dating relationships, one of the partners is being abused.  For more information on the Red Flag Campaign, visit www.theredflagcampaign.org.
