In our ongoing effort to educate and bring knowledge and awareness of relationship violence to the public, The Natalie Novak Fund wants to bring Barb’s Benches to Muskoka. Currently the NNF is raising funds to sponsor three purple benches in our community to commemorate and remember three women who lost their lives through domestic homicide.
Dawn will be presenting A Constructive Analysis of the Murder of Natalie Novak at the “Collaborating to Create Change” event on May 31st in Halifax. The event is organized by Halifax Regional Police Victim Services as part of the Victims of Crime Week 2019.
Dawn Novak will be featured as a speaker at the Victims of Homicide Western Canadian Conference in Edmonton on Monday, April 29th, 2019 from 2:15—3:45 pm. The session will include viewing the video If Only... Nat’s Story. Audiences have described Speaking for Natalie as both a powerful and moving experience.
Dawn and Ed Novak have contributed Natalie's story to a project called "Breaking the Uncomfortable Silence" by Western’s Centre for Research and Education on Violence Against Women & Children (CREVAWC). The project includes a video and a long-form article.
