BCCRN is a provincial umbrella organization that supports Community Response Networks across the province of British Columbia to respond to adults experiencing or being impacted by abuse, neglect or self neglect. On June 15th, BCCRN wants you to get involved in their initiative to educate on older adults and elder abuse. This is how you can get involved: 

  • Wear Purple!

  • On June 15, post pictures of your community’s “purple power” to social media with the hashtag #BCCRNWEAAD2021, or email them to BCCRNs to include in an upcoming E-Connector edition. Don’t forget to tag BC CRN in your photos! (Handle: @BCCRNS for Facebook and Twitter.)

  • Download any of the #BCCRNWEAAD2021 images (Social Media Images)  and post them to your social media to show your support!

  • Download the press release template, and work with your organization to finalize and send it to local news agencies and media outlets.

  • Volunteer with your local Community Response Network (CRN) in a pandemic safe WEAAD activity. Find out more about local events across B.C here.
