June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD)

June 15, 2020 - June 15, 2020        

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) – commemorated on June 15th every year – is an opportunity for people or organizations to take action to protect older people by raising awareness about elder abuse, why it occurs, and what we can do to stop it. We can act collectively to support justice for all.

The 2020 WEAAD theme is Lifting Up Voices. The theme is centered on unifying the parallel fields of Elder Justice and Violence Against Women by bringing to the forefront the lived experiences of older people around the globe. The Lifting Up Voices tools will help with all your planning and promotions.
