The session goes over Reframing Aging, a long-term social change endeavor designed to improve the public’s understanding of what aging means and the many ways that older people contribute to our society. It also review’s it’s sister project, Reframing Elder Abuse, which aims to demonstrate how we can restructure our communities to put elder abuse on the public agenda, generate a sense of collective responsibility, and boost support for systemic solutions to prevent and address it.
