As part of its ongoing efforts to prevent dating violence on campus, the University of Hartford will host the Red Flag Campaign from Monday, Sept. 27, through Thursday, Sept. 30.
During that week, red flags will cover the lawn outside the University's Harry Jack Gray Center, 200 Bloomfield Ave., West Hartford. The flags will remind students to look for the different "red flags" that can signal their friends are victims of dating violence, including emotional abuse, excessive jealousy, isolation, victim blaming, coercion, and stalking. Posters around campus will encourage students to speak up when they see these red flags in friends' relationships.
The University is one of eight campuses across Connecticut participating in the campaign.
The Red Flag campaign was launched at 10 colleges in Virginia in 2006. Since then, it has spread to more than 100 campuses in more than two dozen states.
For more information on the campaign, please visit TheRedFlagCampaign.org or contact Patricia McKenna-Grant, director of the University's Connections Health Education & Wellness Center, at email@example.com or 860.768.4077.
