What is the Red Flag Campaign?
The Red Flag Campaign is a project of the Virginia Sexual & Domestic Violence Action Alliance, Virginia's leading voice on sexual and intimate partner violence.

Research indicates that in 1 in 5 college students experience dating violence. [2011 College Dating Violence and Abuse Poll by Knowledge Networks for Liz Claiborne Inc. (June 2011)]

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 was created by college students, college personnel, and community victim advocates.
