Each year it becomes more and more apparent how important The Red Flag Campaign is in educating our students about healthy and unhealthy relationships.

Research indicates that in 1 in 5 college students experience dating violence.*

The Red Flag Campaign uses a bystander intervention strategy to address and prevent sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking on college campuses. The campaign encourages friends and other campus community members to say something when they see warning signs ("red flags") for sexual assault, dating violence, or stalking in a friend’s relationship. 

The Campaign is a project of the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, and was created by college students, college personnel, and community victim advocates. 


[The Red Flag Campaign] makes me more aware of what is going on around me. I realize that I need to be ready to recognize red flags, and quickly so that if any of my friends were getting hurt, it could be stopped.
