Poster Campaigns

Posters campaigns can be a great way to raise awareness and when used in conjunction with other activities may be part of a more comprehensive prevention project. Here are some examples of poster campaigns that are either pro-active about stopping sexual & dating violence or promote positive messaging and environments.

The Red Flag Campaign

  • Designed by the Virginia Sexual & Domestic Violence Action Alliance for college campuses. The poster messages were vetted by youth and are very high quality. The messages are simple but direct and encourage bystander intervention.
  • Contains a series of 8 different posters (160 in total), actual red flags to stick in the lawn, a planning guide CD with activities and talking points. Approximately $850 for the entire kit.
  • Posters address emotional abuse, jealousy, isolation, victim-blaming, sexual coercion, alcohol-facilitated sexual assault, and stalking.
  • The Red Flag Campaign

Know Your Power

Backbone Zone

  • The Maine Coalition Against Sexual Assault and Boys to Men have collaborated to create an engaging bystanders campaign that also addresses the language students hear in classrooms and hallways, on the way to and from school, and in the media.
  • Designed and tested with high school students. Uses real language and scenarios.

WASAAM posters

Consent is Sexy

  • This is a large project from a South African organization. It contains great dialog and posters about consent. The posters bring up great talking points that could lead to a more in-depth conversation or follow-up writing activity. Designed with language and scenarios that are college-aged.

Don't Be That Guy

  • Created by SAVE (Sexual Assault Voices of Edmonton). These posters address perpetration through their messages instead of placing the burden of prevention on victims. The posters focus on the lack of consent due to intoxication, incapacitation, and coercion.
  • Something to consider, all of the posters address men as the perpetrators and mostly females as victims.
  • Designed to appeal to a college population.
