Know More, Do More: Recognizing and Responding to Stalking
January is Stalking Awareness Month, and New Horizons Shelter and Outreach Centers is inviting the community to join in our efforts to spread awareness about the prevalence of this crime that deserves our attention and empower people to know it, name it, and stop it.
On January 11th from 11 am to 12:30 pm, New Horizons will be hosting “Know More, Do More: Recognizing and Responding to Stalking”, a 90-minute training from the Stalking Prevention, Awareness, and Resource Center. Anyone in the community is invited and encouraged to attend this training.
“Stalking is a prevalent, dangerous and often misunderstood crime. This session explores the dynamics of stalking, focusing on the highly contextual nature of the crime by discussing common tactics used by perpetrators, stalking’s co-occurrence with intimate partner and other types of violence, as well as tools to plan for victim safety and hold offenders accountable.”
