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
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.
