Looking Forward, Looking Back: Considering the Response to Stalking Webinar
January 28 @ 12:00 pm
Debbie Riddle’s youngest sister, Peggy Klinke, was brutally murdered by a stalker on January 18, 2003. Less than 6 months later, Debbie – in collaboration with other national stakeholders – successfully launched National Stalking Awareness Month. Though stalking behavior is nothing new, its recognition as a crime is relatively recent. In honor of NSAM 2021, Debbie Riddle will join SPARC to consider the current state of stalking responses in the United States. Using Peggy’s case as an example, the session will reflect on the diversity of stalking behaviors, the impact(s) on victims, and look ahead to how criminal justice and victim service providers can best serve victims and survivors.
