On World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD), June 15th, get the latest data and resources you can use to promote elder justice all year long.

The #WEAAD615 challenge encourages people around the world to engage their friends, family, and colleagues by sharing facts about elder abuse and how to prevent it. This year, federal agencies will take this challenge with a twist, sharing 6 facts about elder abuse, 1 action the agency will take, and 5 resources or tips you can use to promote elder justice.

Register today to hear from the NCEA and our partners: Administration for Community Living (ACL), Elder Justice Initiative at the Department of Justice (DOJ), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Social Security Administration (SSA), Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), and Senior Medicare Patrol National Resource Center (SMP Resource Center).
