The domestic violence and stalking service community is currently a self-regulated system that is broken. Victims face enormous obstacles when trying to find assistance, and often when they reach out for help, they are overly-referred, turned away or denied service, from agencies that donot offer 'direct services' to victims, but continue to receive the lion's share of government funding.
The most critical point in the victimization cycle is when a victim reaches out for help. Without proper access to much needed services, victims are often unable to escape or survive the cycle of violence, and become disenfranchised by the very system put in place to protect them. Without help,Stalking victims are finding it necessary to ‘self-advocate’. While this may work for some, other victims that may be up against a psychologically aggressive perpetrator do need outside assistance from advocates that are trained to handle high-risk domestic violence and stalking cases.
It is crucial that funding is reallocated to organizations that provide direct and much-needed services for victims in order to prevent further violence, re-victimization and even homicide.
There is a solution, but we need public support as we work to make a difference and enact change. Help us as we urge policy-makers to reform the current system and take stalking and domestic violence reform seriously.

    My ex husband was the most abusive psychopath, along with being extremely dangerous. Stalking and abuse were two things he did very well. I'm proud to sign this petition.
