  4. National Stalking Awareness Month Safe Zone Training: Cyberstalking

    January 30, 2020, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM @ Leadership Studies Building, Room 112

    National Stalking Awareness Month began in response to the 2003 murder of stalking victim Peggy Klinke. Klinke's sister, Debbie Riddle, wanted to change the tragedy into triumph by helping improve law enforcement's response to stalking. In January 2004, the National Center for Victims of Crime launched the first observance of National Stalking Awareness Month and supported communities across the national planning events. In 2011, under the Obama administration, the White House issued the first presidential proclamation on National Stalking Awareness Month.
    K-State students, staff, faculty and Manhattan community members are invited to attend and learn about the definition and components of cyberstalking, prevalence of cyberstalking on college campuses across the nation, long-term effects cyberstalking has on victims/survivors' well-being, and ways to support victims/survivors who experience(d) cyberstalking.
