Building an Elder Justice Movement State by State

Source: California Elder Justice Coalition



Protecting the rights, safety, and security of older adults requires comprehensive public policy and programs for abuse reporting, legal assistance, victims’ rights, consumer protection, patients’ rights, and long term services and supports. This webinar described 4 state coalitions in California, Minnesota, Ohio, and New York that are mobilizing stakeholders to design policies and programs that prevent abuse, counter ageism, promote autonomy and independence, and improve service delivery.  It was the first in a series of webinars as part of CEJC’s National Elder Justice Advocates Academy with support from the Huguette Clark Family Fund for Protection of Elders.

Panelists included:

Lisa Nerenberg, MSW, MPH, Executive Director, California Elder Justice Coalition
Risa Breckman, LCSW, Executive Director, NYC Elder Abuse Center
