New video series about family violence in public places

Erin Casey, left, is the violence prevention advocate who presents in the entire Make it Your Business video series. In the photo, she is talking to Mike James, who acted as one of the bystanders in the video about child abuse.With the support and vision of the City of Charlottetown Mayor’s Purple Ribbon Taskforce, Family Violence Prevention Services has launched a new video series that takes aim at family violence in public places and work environments.

The “Make it Your Business” video series offers brief, practical examples of how to recognize signs of family violence and safely take action. The videos were written and produced in Charlottetown and are designed for workplace training and educating the public. They cover common kinds of violence that bystanders might witness such as sexual assault, abuse of older adults, child abuse, online harassment, or verbal abuse in a public place.

The videos, along with the scenario scripts, training material and other resources are available on the Family Violence Prevention website at fvps.ca/makeityourbusiness/.
