Stalking is a dangerous crime that affected 6.6 million adults in the United States in one year. The better we understand the facts about stalking, the more we can do to stop it.
You can promote National Stalking Awareness Month (NSAM) and enhance your activities by using the downloadable resources below. Three posters, each with a different design; buttons, magnets, and logos; certificates of appreciation; website banners; letterhead; and much more will magnify the visual impact of your campaign. The sample news release offers a model you can use for your own media outreach. Just download the resources you need, and then print them or take them to a local printer.
Whether you have a few minutes, a few hours, or a few days, you can educate yourself and your community about stalking during January, National Stalking Awareness Month:
Make the most of your outreach by ordering the following resources for your campaign. The four striking posters amplify your messages on stalking, and the stalking awareness pin reminds your community to learn more about the crime. The Links in the Chain video, produced by Academy-Award-winning documentary filmmakers, shows how two jurisdictions created successful, collaborative, and multidisciplinary responses to stalking. You can order these and other items at the National Center for Victims of Crime Online Store.
The National Stalking Awareness Month site offers a wealth of information on stalking for service providers and other professionals. Follow the links below to find resources you can use throughout the year.
