Stalking in the News – August 1, 2010

Support H.R. 5662, or the STALKERS Act of 2010 (which stands for Simplifying the Ambiguous Law, Keeping Everyone Reliably Safe Act of 2010) so that anti-stalking laws will be strengthened nationwide, which will also lead to even stricter enforcement, sentencing, and greater public awareness down the road. Sign the petition to show your support by clicking here (http://ow.ly/2jxbH).  Stalking survivors can have their name show up as anonymous for the general public.
