Speaker on Stalking Dangers

The Belles Against Violence Office (BAVO) at Saint Mary's College will welcome Debbie Riddle to speak at the College on Tuesday, January 29. In 2003, Riddle’s sister, Peggy Klinke, was murdered by a man who stalked her for almost a year. Shortly after her sister’s murder, Riddle began speaking publicly to generate change. She is one of the nation’s leading speakers on stalking and has worked closely with the Stalking Resource Center of the National Center for Victims of Crime. Her efforts helped facilitate U.S. Congress to recognize January as National Stalking Awareness Month.

The speaking engagement begins at 7 p.m. in Vander Vennet Theatre on the ground level of the Student Center. The event is free and open to the public. Click for a campus map.
