Red Zone

WHAT: Navigating the Red Zone

WHEN: 2-4 p.m. Wednesday (Aug. 23)

WHERE: Red Raider Lounge, Student Union Building

EVENT: The Red Zone is the period of time between the beginning of the fall semester and Thanksgiving break when the number of sexual assaults on U.S. college campuses are at their highest. The Texas Tech University Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance (FMLA) will host “Navigating the Red Zone” to get information out to students and faculty.

“We hope ‘Navigating the Red Zone’ can serve as education for students and faculty on the support and resources in Lubbock, as well as education about sexual assault itself, in order to prevent the issue from continuing,” said Annika Conrick, FMLA president.

The resource fair is free, and cookies will be available to attendees. The Risk Intervention and Safety Education office and other local organizations and centers will be present at the event.
