Queen’s Daily Eagle: Stalking Awareness Month
A powerful article from the Queens Daily Eagle, ENDGBV Voices Committee posted Jan. 28. 2021.
Dana thought that once she left her abusive ex-husband, she and her young son would be safe. Instead, her ex began calling her hundreds of times a day, driving by her house regularly, and showing up unexpectedly to threaten her and her son. She had to move twice, and both times her ex found her again.
Sadly, Dana’s experience isn’t unique — over 6 million men and women are stalked annually in the US, often in the context of domestic violence.
