Jodi's Voice Against Stalking

Name: Angela Daffron



What is your job? Marketing Consultant & Executive Director of Jodi’s Voice


What social causes are most important to you? Preventing stalking!


What charity do you support – and how? Jodi’s Voice – I founded Jodi’s Voice in honor of Jodi Sanderholm.  Jodi was murdered when she was 19 years old by a stalker in January 2007.  Court records indicate the man had been stalking her for 10 years. 



Why do you have a passion for this one in particular, is there a personal tie? Jodi was a family friend.  I grew up baby sitting her and she babysat my own daughter. I became a victim of stalking in 2009, likely as a result of my advocacy work.


Is there a particular way you would want to encourage readers to be involved? Awareness is key.  If they have been a victim of stalking we would love them to share their story with us by emailing mystory@jodisvoice.org.  Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or check our website for updates on future projects and events. 



How would you define social responsibility?  I believe it is each of our responsibilities to act when we see a problem.  Everyone should be involved in some way to make the world a better place.  Everyone is affected by some cause so rather than simply shaking your head and saying “that’s too bad” do something! Whether it is giving up a cup of coffee every week to donate that $5 to a charity or simply sharing the message of causes just do something.



Do you have any tattoos that relate to your social work? 

I have an early version of our logo.  It is a silver stalking awareness ribbon with angel wings for Jodi!
