Stalking
Stalking Awareness Initiative

As an American Indian non-profit organization, T.K. Wolf began seeing the necessity of responding better to stalking victims a number of years ago. Stalking Resource Center statistics (2009) show that 6.4 million become stalking victims in the US every year—more than annual victims of heart attacks (2.1 million), strokes (700,000) and breast cancer (200,000) combined.

Stalking Facts

Unlike other crimes, stalking can continue for an extended period of time and has been characterized as a chronic law enforcement problem. Stalking is a criminal offense but in spite of existing laws, most cases do not result in criminal intervention and very few result in criminal prosecution. To illustrate this problem, less than a half of one per cent of perpetrators were arrested and prosecuted for the crime of stalking in San Diego County in 1996. **

Stalked

He is invisible,
evident
only in the effects he leaves behind
like a virus
or a mysterious malady.
No one believes he lurks outside my house,
reaches his tentacles into my phone lines,
crawls into my mailbox,
shoplifts my past,
muddies the waters of my future.
My brain struggles to create a strategy for survival.
My heart has established a rapid, persistent drumbeat
that my body can barely contain.
In bed I feel the air disturbed above my face
as he clenches my sleep in his fist
then melts back into the shadows
leaving me wide-eyed with terror.
He ripped away
my children
my family
my friends
with innuendo
isolation
bribes.
He says that I am unstable
and they believe him.
Perhaps I am –
Now.
