"Help! My Ex is Harassing Me Online." - The Hotline

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. There are many types of abuse, including online abuse and bullying, and cyber harassment, and if an abuse survivor goes through a breakup with his or her abuser, the chances of being harassed online are high. Below are some tips for protecting yourself online from cyber harassment:

• Clearly tell your ex to stop harassing you, if you feel safe doing so, preferably in a way that lets you keep a record of your request either by saving the text or email you send, or by taking a screenshot of a message you send via smartphone. Do not respond to any future communications.
• Save everything. You might wish to delete the unwanted messages, but it's important to keep records of any communications with your ex.
• Check to make sure that the settings on any social media site you belong to are set to maximum privacy. Change your passwords, block or unfriend your ex, and don’t provide details of your social plans or whereabouts online.
• If your ex is harassing you via email, create a separate email account with an uncrackable password to use only with people you trust.
• Let family and friends know that your ex is harassing you, if you feel comfortable doing so, and ask that they respect your privacy online by not tagging you on social media or checking you in online.

10/07/2020

Domestic violence affects everyone. It can happen to anyone at any time in any place and knows no economic, age, ethnic, religious, gender or geographic boundaries. Domestic violence is a widespread problem in the United States, with one in four women and one in nine men having experienced it, according to Centers for Disease Control (CDC). October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and we encourage you and your neighbors to be on the lookout for signs of domestic violence and to take action against it. The Domestic Violence Awareness Project offers numerous educational resources and ideas for what our community can do to combat this terrible issue.

To learn more about what you can do to help, visit: https://www.dvawareness.org/. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, call toll-free and confidentially 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).

Mayor Keller Talks about National Night Out in the time of COVID-19

Mayor Keller's office asked us to share this National Night Out video with our neighbors.

National Night Out will be very different this year, due to the ongoing pandemic and public health order. City staff will not be attending any in-person neighborhood events, unfortunately. If your group decides to have a socially-distanced neighborhood event, please adhere to all the public health mandates, make certain to wear a mask, don't gather in groups of more than 10, and maintain a distance of 6 feet between yourself and others. Hopefully, NNO in 2021 will be back to normal and we'll be able to connect and network and be neighborly face-to-face once again. Stay well and safe, neighbors!

The City of Albuquerque is extending the Health Alert for smoke from the recycling plant fire. The fire is located along Edith Boulevard between Montaño and Comanche. The fire may be burning plastics and other substances that emit hazardous air pollutants. Near the fire air quality could be unhealthy. Everyone should avoid exposure to this smoke. Avoid the area of the fire if possible, otherwise stay indoors.

For more information, visit: http://www.cabq.gov/airquality/trends/health-alert-information

People who are at higher risk for respiratory issues from smoke are also more susceptible to infection and severe health consequences from COVID-19. Exposure to smoke can aggravate severity of COVID-19 symptoms, and infection with COVID-19 can increase health impacts from smoke exposure. The risk of COVID-19 transmission remains very high, and people who are vulnerable should remain at home whenever possible, especially when smoke is present.
