Power is in numbers, and right now we are working to build our member base to have a unified voice to bolster awareness and advocate for needed solutions at the local, state, and federal level. Our mission is to turn the voices of those who experienced elder abuse, their loved ones, and advocates across the nation into meaningful action to create a just society for all.

Recognizing that part of the issue is lack of overall awareness about what elder abuse is, it’s impact, and systemic solutions is why we have received a grant from the National Center on Elder Abuse. This grant allows us to work collaboratively with partners to create national and international campaigns, expanding public understanding and generating movement on this issue. Through education, we can build a society that reinforces supportive structures for older people, valuing individuals at every age. See the latest campaign for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day here.
