How Communities Can Support Safe Dating

This advertising safety campaign is making a positive change by improving community
safety. The “Ask for Angela” poster is in the bathrooms at a bar in Lincolnshire. The poster reads:

“If you go to the bar and ask for ‘Angela’ the bar staff will know you need some help getting out of your situation and will call you a taxi or help you out discreetly-without too much fuss.”

Ask for Angela Poster Safety CampaignThis message gives anyone who feels unsafe a tool for removing themselves from uncomfortable situations gracefully. By giving individuals a way out, we give them the power to make healthy decisions.

This poster was created by NOMORE, a non-profit organization that works to prevent sexual violence and abuse.  According to NOMORE, “1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men experience violence from their partners in their lifetimes.” By talking about these issues openly, communities can help provide solutions and support.

The message in this poster is communicated clearly and boldly. This is a simple and great way to combat sexual violence on a local scale. This campaign encourages community members to pay attention to others around them and help those in need.
