Call in to speak with the host
Today, Angela Daffron will come on the show and share why she is so passionate about JODI'S VOICE, a bit about Jodi, some things about stalking, and what you (the listener) can do.
To give you a little more about the background:
Jodi’s Voice was set up out of tragedy. It was named after Jodi Sanderholm, who was murdered by a stalker that had been watching her for ten years. She was only 19 when she died – which meant she had been watched by her killer since she was only nine years old.
Sadly, this is commonplace among stalking victims. Many victims begin being stalked when they are young. In Canada, for example, 11% of women aged 15 and older have been stalked. In the U.S., 14 in every 1,000 women of 18 and above are victims of stalking. And these are only the reported ones.
Sadly, for Jodi, it was too late, although her memory lives on in her family. Her sister gave birth to the family’s first grandchild while Jodi was missing, and her brother became a police officer to help others. And through the organization Jodi’s Voice, we can help make sure Jodi’s tragic death is one that helped change the way the law deals with stalkers.
