Ottawa Story Tellers & the Zonta Club of Ottawa
In partnership with the Zonta Club of Ottawa, Ottawa Story Tellers is gathering stories from social workers and clients of Elder Abuse Ontario focusing on the issue of elder abuse in our communities. For the past year, Zonta has dedicated its resources to raising money in support of programs addressing this ‘hidden crime’. The stories are poignant and disturbing, illuminating as they do how the most vulnerable members of our population often find themselves victimized by the very people they rely on for protection. Ottawa Story Tellers has assembled a team of interviewers, writers, and tellers who are preparing both a live presentation, and a follow-up workbook that will bring people together to hear these stories. The presentation will engage and enlighten, while the workbook will serve as a further educational tool and resource.
