Be sure to register for this upcoming event.
On March 24, the Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse will launch Future Us, a roadmap to elder abuse prevention.
This community engagement strategy examines where we are now and where we need to go to strengthen prevention across the country. It provides clear goals and recommendations so that we can all participate at the individual, community, and government levels to build an integrated approach for elder abuse prevention across communities and across Canada.
In this presentation, Margaret MacPherson (Centre for Research and Education on Violence Against Women and Children) will provide an overview of Future Us with ideas for how you can help in making large social change with concrete practical actions. Margaret is a Research Associate with the Centre for Research and Education on Violence against Women and Children (CREVAWC) at Western University in London Ontario. Margaret designs and develops curriculum and related materials on a number of initiatives including the Make It Our Business workplace domestic violence program and It’s Not Right! Neighbours, Friends and Families for Older Adults. Margaret is passionate in her belief that everyone has an important contribution to make in creating safe and supportive environments at work and in our communities.
