MESSAGE 1 Red Zone Kickoff!
What’s with all the Red?
This week is the official RED
ZONE Kickoff! Red Zone is
campaign that fights against
sexual abuse in our campus
community! Sexual Abuse is
a social issue in America
and
thousands
are
victimized by this act of
crime every year! Abuse can
damage someone not only
physically, but mentally,
emotionally,
and
even
spiritually. Red Zone is here
to
educate
students,
prevent occurrences on
campus,
and
support
students who have been
abused. In support of Red
Zone, the campus will have
different events on campus
relating to abuse. YOU will
have the opportunity to sign
a pledge card and show
support
in
sporting
wristbands, buttons, placing
flags on campus, attending
self-defense
workshops,
movies and discussions, and
much more!
