The campaign, sponsored by Kristen’s fund is designed to educate students and the local community on the topic of domestic violence. As well as the warning signs to look out for. Students also took part in various activities including hand painting as well as a wheel spin. There was also a banner that participants could sign, pledging to say something if they see one of those red flags in a friend's relationship. Guest speaker Brandi Bolton from the YWCA, hopes that students will leave with one message in mind.

"I'm hoping that people will get a better understanding of what a healthy relationship is, and understanding that something that's happening in a relationship may not be unhealthy and that there are people here that can help like us at the YWCA." Said Brandi Bolton of the YWCA.

 

The flags that were created at today’s event will be put on display for next year’s event.
