Art Hindle, Paul Soles, Sean McCann and David Fox are among the veteran cast of Facilitator Films current project It's Not Right - an educational campaign that includes videos that demonstrate abusive behaviours toward elders and how best to intervene and respond supportively.
The project is a partnership between the Centre for Research on Violence Against Women & Children and two highly respected organizations, the Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (CNPEA) and the NationalInitiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE). Realistic scenarios and interventions depicting situations with people from diverse social locations, including Aboriginal and Muslim be the primary teaching tool. The objective is to design resources that will engage the power of everyday resources to mobilize everyone in Canada to recognize the warning signs of elder abuse and to respond safely and effectively.
The project will work to set a new 'social norm' that bystanders no longer 'stand by' when abuse is happening, rather, they take action. For more information visit http://itsnotright.ca/
