Know it: Stalking is any pattern of repeated and unwanted attention, harassment, contact, or any other behavior directed at a specific person that causes that person to feel fear.

Name it: Most stalkers are someone the person knows, not a stranger. If the actions seem over the top, they probably are, tell someone about it.

Do something about it: Listen and believe when someone tells you it’s happening to them. Step up if you see repeated and unwanted harassment.

Step Up! Speak Out!
