0 comments

Among the many issues of sexual violence is the burden of stalking impacting survivors and our communities. Stalking is a major concern and threat of violence, and each year the National Center for Victims of Crime recognizes January as National Stalking Awareness Month. Stalking makes our communities fearful while impacting the sense of privacy and security that individuals and our communities need to thrive.There is a need for resources to help support victims and survivors of stalking and a critical need for prevention. Promoting safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments are among many of the recommendations provided by the CDC toward prevention efforts.

How will you contribute to the prevention of stalking and sexual violence?
