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 email@example.com. 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!
