World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

June 15

As Americans, we believe in justice for all. Yet, every year an estimated 5 million, or 1 in 10 older Americans experience elder abuse, neglect, or exploitation. Working together, we can build the social supports that can prevent this abuse and keep everyone safe as we age. June 15th World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is an opportunity for people and organizations to take action to protect older people by raising awareness about elder abuse, why it occurs, and what we can do to stop it. Support Pathlights in recognizing this important day by learning more at: http://eldermistreatment.usc.edu/weaad-home
