The Intersection of Stalking and Sexual Assault, January 28, 2015 from 3 - 4:30 PM ET
The Intersection of Stalking and Sexual Assault will address the often overlooked link between stalking and sexual assault. Stalking is a crime that is often co-perpetrated with other crimes, such as domestic violence and sexual assault. Research supports a connection between stalking and sexual assault—both pre- and post-assault. In this webinar, we will explore the nature and dynamics of stalking, focusing on its intersection with sexual assault. We will also discuss ways in which this information impacts our responses to and services for victims. Michelle M. Garcia, Director of the Stalking Resource Center, National Center for Victims of Crime will be the presenter.
This session will provide useful information and strategies for a wide variety of professionals, including prosecutors and other lawyers, law enforcement, medical professionals, judges, victim advocates, journalists and communications professionals, and others who interact with and write about sexual assault victims.

VAWA Amendments to Clery: Recognizing & Responding to Stalking on Campus, February 17, 2015 from 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET
The 2013 Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) amendments to the Clery Act require that colleges and universities address stalking in a variety of ways. While these rules are not effective until July 2015, many campuses are already working to implement these provisions and struggling with questions regarding counting stalking crimes, determining Clery geography in stalking cases, and implementing stalking awareness and prevention programming. In this free webinar, the Stalking Resource Center and the Clery Center will explore these and other issues related to recognizing and effectively responding to stalking on campus.
Participants are invited to complete a short, pre-webinar survey that will help presenters focus on pressing issues and areas of concern during this virtual event.
