From the site:
Recent national data indicates that 6.6 million people are stalked in a one year period in the United States; yet stalking is a crime that is often misunderstood, minimized or missed entirely. Guest presenter Rebecca Dreke of the Stalking Resource Center will provide foundational information on stalking, including common stalking dynamics, the impact on victims, and how victim service providers can better assist transgender victims and survivors of stalking. Additionally, the webinar will include a case study in which a transgender professor was stalked by a student. We will explore how their respective identities compromised the effectiveness of officials’ and bystanders’ responses. Webinar participants will be offered practical tools on safety planning and threat assessment as well as other examples to support them in better serving transgender individuals who have experienced stalking.
