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  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!
