Convener: Cheryl Paige

Session 3: Community Response: How to Validate Victims

Wednesday, April 26, 2023 (10 a.m.to 11 a.m.)

Eva Karpati, Moderator

Topics to be covered in this final session included:
  • Connecting with community resources which help;
  • How seniors can be proactive to protect themselves from abuse;
  • Accessing the One Voice resource kit and website.

At our third One Voice session, The Ways That the Community Can Help with Domestic Violence, we heard from Reverend Michelle Singh, who described a response plan, the Five R’s, that one can use to validate a domestic violence victim. Margaret of One Voice spoke about a plan to leave, and Detective Lee Ann West of Toronto Police Services talked in detail about police response and support. Eva Karpati of the National Council of Jewish Women of Canada, Toronto’s One Voice Project provided an overview of the ongoing work and the previous webinars.

This webinar was most informative and invaluable in providing information for our members.
