January is Stalking Awareness Month. It is critical that we raise awareness about the violating nature of stalking and its warning signs. Stalking often occurs in many different forms, including making repeated unsolicited phone calls, sending unwanted letters or other items, and following victims or showing up at their workplaces or homes. COVID-19 restrictions create new vulnerabilities for victims of stalking, particularly through online methods and social media. Cyberstalking is another form of threatening behavior including, but not limited to unwarranted e-mails, instant and direct messaging, or liking and commenting on social media posts. The fear, stress, and anxiety that is endured can be debilitating to a person. To learn more, please visit CDC – Stalking: Know it. Name it. Stop it.
