It can happen to anyone. Its dangerous. Its a crime. Check back soon to see what events we have planned for Stalking Awareness Week at UNH. Learn more about the impact of stalking here.

On January 18, 2003, Peggy Klinke’s stalker found and killed her, then killed himself. The month after Peggy’s murder, her sister Debbie Riddle began to speak out about stalking, using Peggy’s story as a catalyst for change.

Debbie Riddle is one of the country’s leading speakers on stalking. Since 2003 she has been both a national speaker, educator, and advocate for stalking awareness. She speaks out to honor the life of her sister, Peggy, and intends for Peggy’s story to serve as a catalyst for change. For the past 15 years, she has joined forces with the National Center for Victims of Crime and the Stalking Resource Center to continue educating others and advocating for change.

The Vagina Monologues at UNH | Saturday 2/16

7pm | Murkland 115 | Ticket sales will begin soon

The Vagina Monologues dives into the mystery,
humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and
excitement buried in women’s experiences.

Where it all began

Hailed by The New York Times as “funny” and “poignant” and by the Daily News as “intelligent” and “courageous,” Eve Ensler’s, Vagina Monologues, dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences.

The award-winning play is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler's interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength. Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives. For more than twelve years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public. Once a year, in February, March, and April, Eve allows groupsaround the world to produce a performance of the play and use the proceeds for local programs that work to end violence against women and girls.

Presented by the UNH Sexual Harassment & Rape Prevention Program (SHARPP)

Proceeds benefit UNH SHARPP and the V-Day Spotlight Campaign

Stepping Out Against Violence at UNH: RALLY&WALK! 

Save the Date! April 11 | 12:30 on the Great Lawn

This localized social movement aims at gathering students, faculty, staff and Durham community members together to take a collective and powerful stance against all forms of violence on our campus, including violence against women. Violence against victims/survivors results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in relationships, and from societal abuse of power and domination in the forms of sexism, racism, heterosexism, classism, able-bodyism, ageism and other oppressions.

This event will include informational tables, reading of UNH's Community Proclamation Against Violence, a student call to action to end violence at UNH and a 20 minute walk around campus.

This event is sponsored by SHARPP with support from organizations and department at UNH and in the local community.
