UVa-Wise is a 2015-2016 Red Flag Campaign partner school.  The Red Flag Campaign is a project of the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance.  The program is 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 or “red flags” for sexual assault, dating violence, or stalking in a friend’s relationship.  Learn more about The Red Flag Campaign online.
