Powerfully, persuasively and practically, Jocelyn Coupal shines the spotlight on preventing and responding to domestic violence. None of us can ignore her message as she compels all of us to do our part to keep women safe.

I have had the great privilege of working with Jocelyn in implementing the Langley Domestic Violence Pilot. Her passion and tireless energy were most impressive. More importantly, her commitment to educating those both within and outside of the system was phenomenal. Her work has created a lasting legacy for this province and throughout Canada.

Special thanks to: Jocelyn Coupal for her contribution to the content and for adding this project to the list of others she has taken on in her continued efforts to improve the way the criminal justice system addresses Domestic Violence.

I just wanted to say again, how very deeply appreciative we all are of you Jocelyn. Your testimony today was something to behold! Your articulation of the issues, dynamics, strengths and needs was amazing. I made a note to order the transcript as the way you so many times talked about the need and work of community based victim assistance programs needs to be quoted from. You really made a huge impact and it was very clear that the Jury loved you. Just can't thank you enough! All the best and with my utmost respect and thanks!
Tracy Porteous, Executive Director, Ending Violence Association of B.C. Oak Bay Murder-Suicide Inquest.
I have had the honor of observing Jocelyn Coupal in a number of contexts: as a dynamic keynote speaker, as a passionate trainer of police and victim advocates, as an innovative leader among Crown prosecutors and as a powerful expert witness at a high profile coroner's inquest. Jocelyn has the rare gift of being able to present technical information in a format lawyers, judges and senior members of the legal profession can relate to. But Jocelyn also connects with professionals and lay people from all walks of life: engaging their hearts and minds to help stop the killing of women and children.
