Red Flag Campaign
The Red Flag Campaign uses 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 (“red flags”) for sexual assault, dating violence, or stalking in a friend’s relationship.
The Campaign is a project of the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, and was created by college students, college personnel, and community victim advocates. Learn more by visiting the Red Flag Campaign web site.

Trapped Film Screening
WHAT REMAINS OF A WOMAN’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE?
U.S. reproductive health clinics are fighting to remain open.
Since 2010, 288 laws regulating abortion providers have been passed by state legislatures. In total, 44 states and the District of Columbia have measures subjecting abortion providers to legal restrictions not imposed on other medical professionals. Unable to comply with these far-reaching and medically unnecessary laws, clinics have taken their fight to the courts.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark ruling (Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt) that prevents individual states from essentially outlawing abortion. Trapped follows the clinic workers and lawyers who were on the front lines of the battle to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of American women.
Join us Monday, March 6th at 6:00pm in the EUC Auditorium for a screening of Trapped. A panel discussion will follow featuring Dr. Lisa Levenstein, Associate Professor of History and Director of the Humanities Network and Consortium, Dr, Jennifer Whitney, Director of UNCG Counseling Center
Co-sponsored by Women and Gender Studies, Advocates Taking Action, Planned Parenthood South Atlantic, and the UNCG Counseling Center.

Violence Unsilenced Film: Audrie & Daisy
If you’re a teenage girl and have been sexually assaulted, you probably asked for it. You dressed too provocatively, maybe, or flirted too much. Surely you’d been drinking. And that’s just what you have to battle if some people actually believe you. Because you’ll also be accused of lying. That’s the horrific (but also, tragically, common knowledge) takeaway from Netflix’s documentary “Audrie & Daisy.” Similar to 2015’s “The Hunting Ground,” Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk’s film focuses on the victims of rape and other sexual crimes, demonstrating how those assaults were just the beginning of their nightmares.
Join us from 6:00pm – 8:00pm in the EUC Maple Room.
