January 2024 marks the 20th annual National Stalking Awareness Month (NSAM)! Our 2024 campaign materials are coming soon. In the meantime, check out our 2023 materials for an idea of what to expect.

This year, we’re delighted to launch January 18th as the first ever National Day of Action for Stalking Awareness! Please save the date.

Blue and white sparkly background with the following text in white overlaid: Save the date January 18 Day of Action for Stalking Awareness SPARC invites you to park a dialogue around stalking! Wear something sparkly or shiny on January 18th and share your picture as part of the NSAM Day of Action

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.
