The Virginia Peninsula – On October 9, Thomas Nelson Community College will participate in launching the pilot of Virginia’s first statewide public awareness effort aimed at stopping dating violence on college campuses. The pilot project called, The Red Flag Campaign, helps students identify “red flags” for dating violence in their friends’ relationships and encourages them to intervene.

The campaign is a result of the combined work of students, faculty, and victim advocates from nearly 20 colleges and universities across Virginia. Thomas Nelson Community College was chosen to be one of only 10 colleges and universities statewide to participate in the pilot because of its integral role in developing the campaign.
