    Stalking is a crime in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

    Yet many victims and criminal justice professionals underestimate its seriousness and impact.  One of the most important things to know about stalking is that it is one of the most significant risk factors for femicide, which is homicide of women in abusive relationships.  Bright Horizons representatives, Jen and Audrea, will talk about what stalking is, the impact it has on victims, and ways to get the stalking to stop.  They will also be discussing warning signs that your employee may be in an abusive relationship, what to do if you suspect this, and how you can help them. 

    Bright Horizons is dedicated to the elimination of domestic violence and sexual assault through empowerment, education, social action, and support services. They provide Individual Advocacy, Shelter Support, Support Groups, Community Education, Criminal Justice and Legal Advocacy.

    Bright Horizons began in 1976 with one woman opening her home for abused victims in the Norfolk area and covered Antelope, Boyd, Holt, Knox, Madison, Pierce, and Stanton counties. The need for shelter and services continued to grow at a steady pace. On January 16th, 1991 a five bedroom, three bathroom home was purchased for emergency shelter and office space.  In 1995, Bright Horizons recognized the need for a satellite office therefore opening an office in O’Neill.  Today, Bright Horizons continues to cover the original seven county service area and is reaching more survivors than ever before.
