College Launches Red Flag Campaign

NWACC announces the launch of The Red Flag Campaign. This campaign is designed to provide education and outreach to students and employees in the areas of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and sexual assault. All institutions of higher education who receive any type of federal funding are required by law to meet the new Violence Against Women ReAuthorization Act (VAWA) requirements under the Clery Act and this new Bystander Intervention campaign will help our campus to not only achieve compliance, but to provide much needed information and resources to our campus community.

Our message is simple: SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING.  This message is about speaking up for those who do not have a voice, intervening by asking someone if something is wrong or if they need help, and educating our campus on the resources we have for reporting and receiving help. We want to create awareness and provide outreach for issues surrounding domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and sexual assault. We ask that students and employees across all campuses understand the message, help us engage our entire community, wear the RED FLAG bracelet, and share the message with others they encounter.

For more information on reporting and resources please visit our website at:  https://www.nwacc.edu/web/conduct/redflag or email us at:  RedFlag@nwacc.edu

If you are interested in purchasing a RED FLAG T-shirt to wear in support of this campaign, you can purchase your t-shirt by visiting the website:  http://www.theredflagcampaign.org and clicking on the “Visit the Red Flag Campaign Store” link on the left side of the page.

College Launches Red Flag Campaign

NWACC announces the launch of The Red Flag Campaign. This campaign is designed to provide education and outreach to students and employees in the areas of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and sexual assault. All institutions of higher education who receive any type of federal funding are required by law to meet the new Violence Against Women ReAuthorization Act (VAWA) requirements under the Clery Act and this new Bystander Intervention campaign will help our campus to not only achieve compliance, but to provide much needed information and resources to our campus community.

Our message is simple: SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING.  This message is about speaking up for those who do not have a voice, intervening by asking someone if something is wrong or if they need help, and educating our campus on the resources we have for reporting and receiving help. We want to create awareness and provide outreach for issues surrounding domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and sexual assault. We ask that students and employees across all campuses understand the message, help us engage our entire community, wear the RED FLAG bracelet, and share the message with others they encounter.

For more information on reporting and resources please visit our website at:  https://www.nwacc.edu/web/conduct/redflag or email us at:  RedFlag@nwacc.edu

If you are interested in purchasing a RED FLAG t-shirt to wear in support of this campaign, you can purchase your t-shirt by visiting the website:  http://www.theredflagcampaign.org and clicking on the “Visit the Red Flag Campaign Store” link on the left side of the page.
