KEARNEY – The University of Nebraska at Kearney is hosting a Stalking Awareness Panel to increase knowledge about the issue, discuss warning signs and help guide people on what they should do if they, or someone they know, is being stalked.
Hosted by the UNK Women’s Center, the discussion is from 4 to 5 p.m. Jan. 24 at the Nebraskan Student Union Ponderosa Room. The event is free and open to the public.
January is national stalking awareness month.
“Stalking affects many people, and often those who are being stalked may not even be aware that the behavior is considered stalking,” said Kiphany Hof, associate director of counseling.
Panelists for the discussion include Ricci Fast, UNK Police Department; JoAnn Andersen, victim/witness director, Kearney Police Department; Hof, UNK Counseling and Women’s Center; and a legal advocate with the S.A.F.E Center.
