Marywood University to Hold Community Stalking Awareness Campaign
January Is National Stalking Awareness Month
Scranton, PA (January 16, 2024) — January 2024 marks the 20th National Stalking
Awareness Month, an annual call to action to recognize and respond to the serious crime
of stalking.
Stalking is defined as a pattern of behavior directed at a specific person that causes fear.
Many stalking victims experience being followed, approached, monitored and/or
threatened—including through various forms of technology. Victims and survivors often
suffer anxiety, social dysfunction, and severe depression as a result of their victimization,
and many lose time from work and/or move.
As a part of the Department of Justice Grant, Project SHARE, Marywood’s prevention
education efforts of the grant will be supporting a Stalking Awareness Week, January 22-
26, 2024. The events scheduled are as follows:
? January 22 - Sweet Information Table, Learning Commons, 11 a.m.- 2 p.m.:
This will be a tabling event where students can pick up information (flyers,

? January 23 - Stalking In the Media Presentation, Upper Main, Nazareth Student
Center, 5-6 p.m.: This event is a presentation about how the media portrays
