In honor of January’s National Stalking Awareness Month, Cal Poly’s Safer is hosting “Love, Boundaries” — a month-long campaign dedicated to stalking prevention and boundary setting.

The campaign is hosting a variety of events for students surrounding survivor support, education and awareness.  

“Ultimately, stalking behaviors are repeated violations of boundaries — and we all deserve our boundaries to be respected,” the Safer website reads.

Safer began the month with informational booths on campus and a student-run workshop based on “setting and respecting boundaries,” according to their Instagram

Other events will include a “How to Support a Survivor” workshop, an informational booth in the University Union (UU), a Craft Circle and the “Athletes For a Safer Campus’ 2nd Annual Night Relay” on the Cal Poly track. Information on event dates, times and locations can be found on Safer’s website or Instagram

The Stalking Prevention, Awareness, & Resource Center (SPARC) offers a variety of additional activities and resources including educational webinars, trainings, leadership materials and shareable documents, all of which can be found here.
