If someone makes you feel afraid, there are laws to protect you.
It is against the law for someone to
- harass you,
- stalk you, or
- make obscene, threatening, or annoying telephone calls, text messages, or emails—it does not matter if you answer them or not.
If you are afraid, talk to someone you trust, such as a teacher or counselor. You can also talk to a police officer or go to court. Ask the court to make orders to protect you.
