Can You Help Us Change the Laws on Stalking?

When Jackie and I read Gini Dietrich’s blog post sharing her personal story about stalking, we were both shocked and sickened by the terrifying situations that stalking victims endure. The worst (and probably scariest) part is that, in almost every instance, the police told these victims there is nothing they can do until an attack happens.

The other hard truth we learned is how often stalking occurs. As Gini’s post states, “In the U.S. alone, 14 in every 1,000 women of 18 and older are victims of stalking.”

Jackie and I both knew instantly we wanted to get involved and help change the laws on stalking.

This month, Danny Brown’s 12for12K highlights Jodi’s Voice, an organization started in honor of Jodi Sanderholm, a victim of stalking.

Watch this video to learn more about the issue.

Here are a few other ways you can get involved with the cause:

A very special thank you to Gini Dietrich for sharing her story and her post.

  1. Hi there Kim,

    Thank you so much for posting this and sharing what we’re trying to do on behalf of Jodi’s Voice. It’s an amazing organization and it’s so important that the legislative change they’re pushing for becomes law.

    Hopefully Jodi is one of the last to suffer because the law is messed up.
