World Elder Abuse Awareness Day Forum

June 15, 2018

The National Indigenous Elder Justice Initiative hosts an annual forum on June 15 to raise awareness for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is an opportunity to recognize the more than one million Americans age 65 or older who have suffered abuse. According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, it is estimated that for every one case of reported elder abuse, neglect, exploitation, or self-neglect, about five more incidents go unreported.
