In recognition of Stalking Awareness Month, January 2015, we invite you to join us for a webinar series and we encourage advocacy programs, law enforcement, mental health professionals, healthcare workers, attorneys and all allies to attend this series:
Compassionate communities learn what stalking is and listen to and believe victims when they reach out for help. It is wrong for victims of stalking to feel isolated and unsupported. This webinar will link the more well known crimes of domestic violence and sexual assault to the crime of stalking. This webinar will also discuss the use of stalking logs to document the crime and the importance of safety planning with victims.
Technology has proved to be a valuable resource to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. This same technology is also being misused by offenders to control victims. It is essential victims are made aware of these issues and plan for safety. This webinar will disucss how common technologies such as cell phones, computers and GPS devices are used to monitor victim’s actions.

Compassionate Communities was dedicated to seeking to challenge and reshape our core beliefs about today’s families’ reality. And at the same time offer bold new ways to think about families in the entirety of their experience – from violence to poverty to immigration, and more. Those who were able to join us, were challenged to imagine new ways to prevent violence and to respond to families impacted by violence. We believe that, together, we can create the conditions where all families thrive.

The convening was dedicated to cultivating interconnected communities to prevent and respond to violence against women and girls, men and boys. Engaging and connecting with marginalized and oppressed communities is essential to widening the circle of compassion. In order to create compassionate communities, we think of the person or child who is valued the least, suffers the most, and comes in last, and we put that person, and others like them, at the center of our work. Compassionate Communities draws wisdom from science and diverse social justice movements, and cultivates compassion to create a future without violence.
