Time to Mobilize and Take Action!

Making fun of violence is unacceptable and it is time that we let advertisers know that we are not going to accept their fun and games.

Virgin Mobile’s current advertising campaign makes light of stalking and the use of technology to assist one in stalking. It is inappropriate and irresponsible. This is an opportunity for us to educate them about the reality that stalking creates for dv/sa survivors – a reality that is full of fear, abuse and all too frequently death.


Please email Virgin Mobile’s marketing director at: Corinne.nosal@sprint.com and let her know your thoughts.

Let’s all make a difference and get these removed from the air and hold Virgin Mobile accountable!

Every day at HAVEN we meet with women who are being stalked by their partners, ex-partners, acquaintances, and even strangers. Their lives have become a nightmare filled with fear, stress, and depression. We constantly advise survivors about the various ways technology can be used by their stalkers and abusers. Stalkers are dangerous people who ignore personal boundaries. Their actions can quickly escalate to violence when they do not receive their desired response. This is not a joking matter.
