Haven Project Stalking AWAREness Table in the Library

Posted on 1/22/2015 10:54:13 AM

Stalking may seem like it’s a far-away issue that could never happen to you or someone you know. But in reality, more than 6 million people are stalked every year in the U.S. alone. Out of those victims, more than half of female victims and more than one third of male victims indicated that they were stalked before the age of 25.

Join the Haven Project on our campaign to help raise AWAREness against stalking by visiting the Stalking AWAREness table at the Health Hut. At the Haven Project AWAREness table, you will find statistics on stalking incidents in the United States, information on how to reduce your risk of experiencing this crime, and campus/community resources for victims of stalking.

Date: Monday, January 26, 2015
