Description: 

Stalking affects 6.6 million people in the United States each year and stalking victims recount the fear and distress they have experienced as a result of this crime in courtrooms throughout the country everyday. Far too often, these victims’ reports are taken seriously only after the stalkers escalate their behaviors and cause significant property damage, physical harm, or death to their victims. Stalkers create and exploit vulnerabilities in their victims while relying on technology and their ability to manipulate the justice system in order to conceal their crimes and cast doubt on their victim’s credibility. This conference will address the challenges stalking crimes present, the use of technology to commit and conceal the crime and innovative strategies for investigating and prosecuting stalkers and promoting victim safety.AEquitas is partnering with the Stalking Resource Center and the Battered Women’s Justice Project to host a national conference that will include topical and skill building sessions designed to enhance the ability of participants to prosecute intimate partner stalking cases.
