The Red Flag campaign will make its debut onto WCU’s campus this semester.
It was created by students for students” Sholock said.
Angela Thomas is a fourth year student majoring in English with a minor in web technology.
Now, with the promise of warmer weather, the flags were rooted, yet again, to the grounds in the Quad with the promise of drawing curious minds to their cause.
According to the sample press release by the Red Flag Campaign, in twenty-one percent of college-level dating relationships, at least one person is being abused.
“The Thing about this campaign is that it just isn’t aimed at women keeping themselves safe, but it is also aimed at potential perpetrators, which could be men.
What we really liked about the campaign was that it was responsive to a diverse range of people that are impacted by intimate partner violence,” Sholock said.
In fact, 1 in 5 teens who have been in a serious relationship report being hit, slapped or pushed by their boyfriend or girlfriend.
As tweens and teens explore dating, it is critical that they begin to understand what's ok and what's NOT ok in a relationship.
That is one in five relationships in which one person is abused.
Thirty-two percent of college students have reported experiences in dating violence from previous partners and fifty-one percent of college males have admitted to committing one or more sexual assault episodes in college.
