    Wear Red Day

    Student organizers of last year's Wear Red Day
    with President Alger and his staff

    Wear the color red on Oct. 22 to help raise awareness for dating violence and stalking. Post a photo of yourself wearing red, or with a red flag, and the hashtag #jmuredflag!

    There will be an information table on the Commons from 12-3, posters and red flags around campus, red desserts for sale at Dunkin Donuts and E-Hall, and intimate partner violence speaker Melissa Fabello presents "Bleeding Love: Pop Music, Advertising, and the Normalization of Dating Violence," in the Festival Ballroom at 7pm.

    The Red Flag Campaign is a public awareness campaign designed to address dating violence and stalking and promote the prevention of both on college campuses. It encourages friends and other campus community members to "say something" when they see warning signs ("red flags") for dating violence in someone's relationship.
