RCASA’s Wednesday Outreach: January is National Stalking Awareness Month.

In Awareness Campaigns, Education, Outreach, Prevention on December 29, 2010 at 10:58 am

As we get ready to celebrate the New Year we need to raise awareness about Stalking and how to prevent it from happening.  January is National Stalking Awareness Month.  You can read about the history of NSAM and why it was so important to bring this issue to the forefront to prevent more violent crimes from happening.  So many of the offenses of stalking are not crimes in and of themselves but the definition of stalking is a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear. 

There are no specific events scheduled for NSAM in our area but you can raise awareness to your friends and family members.  The Stalking Resource Center Website has so many ways to promote the month on their website.  Please visit them at www.stalkingawarenessmonth.org for more information and how you can get involved.
