Day of Action for Stalking Awareness – Thursday, January 18, 2024
January 18 was chosen as the Stalking Awareness Day of Action to commemorate the murder of Peggy Klinke by her stalker, on this date in 2003. Peggy’s sister, Debbie Riddle, is a stalking activist who founded NSAM in honor of her sister. Debbie said, “Peggy had a sparkling personality and would light up a room. As the stalking continued and continued, we saw that shine fade.” Learn more about Peggy’s story here. On the anniversary of her death, let’s bring back the sparkle – for Peggy and for all victims and survivors of stalking. Wear your flashiest, most sparkly clothes and accessories and post a picture to spark a conversation on stalking.
