From our conversation with Sheri, we learned all about VictimsVoice.
1. What is VictimsVoice?
VictimsVoice is a legally admissible documentation tool where victims are easily collecting the necessary details of each incident of their abuse in one central tool, allowing them to get protection and seek legal justice while assisting the prosecution in increased conviction rates with more appropriate charges.
2. Why is record keeping so important? Don’t police and judges keep records?
3. Why is it so challenging for survivors to document abuse and keep records on their own? (I.e., stress impairs memory, one may have to leave physical records behind if leaving abuser, etc.)
4. How can SupportPay users & our directory Professionals learn more about familial violence and support VictimsVoice?
We have resource information available on our website at VictimsVoice.app, as well as most social platforms, all of which can be found @VictimsVoiceApp. We also hold monthly “Lunch-N-Learn” webinars for free where we dig deep into information needed but hardly addressed. The calendar for those events and more can also be found in the calendar section of our website.
We at SupportPay are grateful to have learned so much from Sheri and hope that her organization can help you or someone you know.
