Seeing Red (Flags)?

Research indicates that 36% of college students have experienced some form of violent and abusive dating behaviors including physical, sexual, tech, verbal or controlling abuse.

Wilkes is participating in a public awareness effort aimed at stopping intimate partner violence. This project, called The Red Flag Campaign, will help you recognize red flags that might be present in a relationship in which dating violence is happening.

The purpose of this campaign is to encourage our community members to speak up when they see red flags in the relationships of friends, colleagues or students.

Mark your calendars to join us during club hours on Thursday, April 11, at the Henry Student Center for Rita's Italian Ice, free t-shirts for the first 100 people, and information on campus resources. You can also pick up a red ribbon and let us know who you wear red for!

For more information on what constitutes dating violence, how to help or how to get help for a friend, visit www.wilkes.edu/wearred or contact samantha.hart@wilkes.edu.
