The Red Flag Campaign is a new awareness project brought to campus by Speak Up Bucknell in spring 2016. The campaign encourages people to recognize the "red flags" that might signal an unhealthy or abusive relationship, and to intervene if they notice these red flags in others' relationships.

As part of the campaign, members of the community are invited to write warning signs, or "red flags," of unhealthy or abusive relationships onto red vinyl flags that are then publicly displayed. Anyone wishing to write a message of support for victim-survivors of relationship violence, or who is willing to speak up if they witness a relationship "red flag," can also sign their name or write their message on an orange or blue flag. These orange and blue flags form a protective ring around the red flags, creating a visual reminder of our supportive community of positive bystanders who are willing to intervene to protect others from relationship violence.


If you or someone you know suspect a relationship may be abusive, we encourage you to reach out to any of the resources listed below.

Helping a Victim-Survivor

When victim-survivors disclose their sexually violent experience, it is important to serve as a positive bystander and source of support as they work through their reactions to the trauma. It is important to remember that a victim-survivor disclosed their assault because they trust you.

Red Flag

If you see something, say something.

Positive bystanders are individuals who witness emergencies or situations that could lead to criminal events and choose to intervene and prevent the situation from escalating.

The bystander approach to sexual violence prevention puts the responsibility of stopping sexual violence on the community, rather than on the victim-survivor.
