Red Flag Educators 

Appalachian State University's Red Flag Educators (RFEs) have a responsibility for creating Active Bystanders on campus and in the Boone community. They educate peers on “Red Flags” of sexual, interpersonal, and dating violence while encouraging the Appalachian community to be active bystanders and speak out when they see potentially dangerous situations. RFEs have a responsibility to present to peer groups, organizations, classes, etc. on topics of interpersonal violence, active bystander intervention, and rape culture.
