NCEA invites you to “Take a Stand in the Fight Against Elder Abuse.”
Public Awareness Tools
NCEA has created the following tools to help you, your family, or your organization make a difference in the lives of vulnerable elders. These tools may be especially helpful for planning World Elder Abuse Awareness Day Events and responding to public inquiries.
Tip Sheets for Involvement and Prevention
World Elder Abuse Awareness Day
Planning something for WEAAD? Register an event in your state for others to join here!
We have a roadmap to elder justice, but without guides and signs to lead travelers our impact may be lost. Check out NCEA’s WEAAD page and Take The Roadmap Challenge for WEAAD 2015!
ACL has also provided ideas on how to get involved on their WEAAD microsite, too! Get inspired by the Take Action section, and find more resources for planning activities in Tools & Tips.
Become a Collaborator and share your information and resources related to elder abuse and neglect with the public.
It only takes One Action and One Person to make a difference, spread awareness, and become One Nation united against elder abuse!
