SGA, Dean of Students to host Red Flag campaign, launch "It’s On Us" sexual violence initiative at UAH
UAH's Dean of Students Office and the Student Government Association (SGA) will sponsor a series of activities aimed at preventing sexual violence Tuesday, Oct. 21 through Oct. 23. These events include the annual Red Flag Campaign, hosted now for the third year. In addition, UAH alumna Stephanie Gilmore ('94 BA Philosophy), an award-winning educator, and nationally recognized writer, and sexual violence activist will offer a keynote address. Lastly, Student Government Association will host its campus wide launch of the "It's On Us" campaign.
The Red Flag campaign is a national initiative designed to address dating violence and promote the prevention of dating violence on college campuses. Special events are planned each day for the Red Flag campaign from 10 a.m., to noon in the Charger Union Lobby. On Oct, 21, at 6 p.m., Gilmore will give a talk on Sexual Assault Prevention on College Campuses. The event is free and open to the public.
"Educating the university community on the importance of by-stander intervention as it relates to sexual violence prevention is one of the themes of this year's campaign. The idea that we each have a responsibility to keep the community safe is critical," said Dr. Regina Hyatt, UAH Dean of Students.
