Outside of the Shadows: 
A project on criminal harassment in Canada

Created / written/ narrated by Julie S. Lalonde
Animated by Ambivalently Yours

Julie S. Lalonde was stalked for over a decade. Even though she was an award winning women’s rights advocate, it wasn’t safe for her to tell her story. Then her abuser died.

Julie broke her silence and took the social justice movement to task for ignoring criminal harassment. We talk about sexual violence. We talk about intimate partner violence. Why don’t we talk about stalking? Julie was tired of waiting for people to do it. She was tired of screaming into the void. So, she created this project.

Thanks to the generosity of 87 individual donors, she was able to partner with Ambivalently Yours to create a PSA with practical advice for victims and their allies. The hope is that this project will expand and become a clearinghouse of information on criminal harassment in Canada with practical tips and resources.
