Stalking Awareness: Myth vs. Reality

MYTH: Stalkers are not dangerous, just annoying. REALITY: Stalkers are extremely unpredictable and are often dangerous. In fact, 76 percent of intimate partner female homicide victims were previously stalked by their killer. Join SAVE Taskforce’s efforts to debunk common and dangerous myths by discussing the facts you learn from the LincIn posts, table tents and bathroom posters.
