Registration is open for this Zoom seminar event hosted by the Covid-19 Task Force on Domestic Violence and featuring an international panel including NCALL Director, Bonnie Brandl.
This webinar will explore the challenges and opportunities that arise in working with older survivors during a pandemic, with a particular focus on issuance, service, and enforcement of protection orders.
Tragically, as we ready ourselves for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2020, we’re also coming to terms with the fact that elder abuse is on the rise during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As victim advocates and programs navigate supporting older survivors through the COVID-19 pandemic, collaboration, creativity, and compassion will be key.
A short list of COVID-19 resources for the field.
This year, the United States is experiencing the convergence of two public health crises—COVID 19 and racism—and issues like health care and civil rights are both centered in our national dialogue and reflected in our choices on the ballot. Voting is one significant way individuals can express and shape what matters most to them.
Join NCALL on August 27th for an online chat on the Older Victims of Crime Trainers and Educators Forum to discuss effective training and education in the age of COVID-19 and addressing the impact of systemic racism on older victims through effective training and education.
NCALL is proud to support the How Right Now initiative, which is focused on sharing information and support to help people cope and be resilient through the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are calling on faith communities and faithful people everywhere to increase their efforts to connect with and support older survivors of abuse.
Many older Americans turn to their faith communities and faith leaders for help when they are experiencing abuse. Older survivors know and deeply trust faith leaders and community members and often reach out for assistance in times of great need. As a faith leader, you can play a critical role in responding to abuse as well as improving access to services and supports for older survivors in your community.
