In 2013, to honor World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL), developed a series of information sheets to increase awareness of abuse in later life and to provide valuable information and resources to service providers and justice professionals who may work with older victims.

A feature written by David France, appearing in the Jan/Feb 2006 AARP Magazine. Too ashamed or too scared to speak up, tens of thousands of 50-plus victims of domestic violence suffer in silence

In 2012, the South Dakota Coalition Ending Domestic & Sexual Violence created three new tools: the Battering Triangle, Equality Wheel, and Violence/ Non-violence Tree, based upon the work of Sacred Circle & DAIP of Duluth. A number of years prior, the then Sacred Circle, National Resource Center To End Violence Against Native Women, revised the Power and Control Wheel created by the Duluth Domestic Abuse Intervention Project. A number of conversations had taken place about the cultural significance of the wheel/circle in Native cultures as a symbol of equality/connection/ non-violence/ harmony, and also, the root cause of violence as hierarchy which is represented by the triangle. The result of those conversations was the Battering Triangle.  Additionally, two more tactics were added: cultural and ritual abuse.  Though, added specifically to address issues within Indian Country, they are responsive to the realities of battering of all women.

The Wisconsin Coalition Against Domestic Violence (WCADV) began to proactively address abuse in later life in the mid-1980’s. In 1999, WCADV formed the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL), a national resource and training center to aid community responses to domestic and sexual violence in later life. The information in this issue of the Coalition Chronicles highlights WCADV and NCALL's shared commitment to ending violence in all families…at all ages.
