Red Flag Campaign
Clark State has joined a national campaign to prevent sexual assault and relationship violence. The project, called The Red Flag Campaign, uses a bystander intervention strategy to empower campus members to intervene when they encounter abusive behavior. The project brings awareness to important topics and aspects of abuse including coercion, emotional abuse, sexual assault, victim -blaming, excessive jealousy, isolation and stalking.
Clark State's Sexual Prevention Team will utilize the Red Flag Campaign in campus programming such as awareness events and prevention trainings. The purpose of the campaign is to encourage students to "say something" when they see warning signs ("red flags") for dating violence in their friends’ relationships. Friends have an influential role in intervening, not only with the victim, but also with the abusive partner. Peer groups can provide safety and support and can also dictate what behaviors are unacceptable. The Red Flag Campaign's goal is to help college students harness their power to change the cultural tolerance of violence in relationships.

If you or a friend needs immediate help, contact Counseling Services at 937.328.7961, your local domestic violence agency or the National Domestic Violence Hotline: 800.799.7233.
