Are you interested in becoming a member of the Elder Justice Coalition?
The Elder Justice Coalition is a national organization dedicated to promoting elder justice in America. The Coalition works to fulfill its mission through education, advocacy, and support of federal initiatives to address the growing crisis of elder abuse, neglect and exploitation.
The introduction of the Elder Justice Act (S. 795) on February 10, 2003 by Senators John Breaux and Orrin Hatch served as the catalyst for the establishment of this Coalition. The primary mission of the Coalition is to advance this legislation which members of our Coalition helped to develop. Now, with the introduction of a House companion bill (H.R. 2006) on June 17th, our mission is further focused to gain more Congressional co-sponsors. The purpose of the Coalition is:
- Increasing public awareness of the tragedy of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation at the local, state, and national levels.
- Increasing awareness of the Elder Justice Act as a comprehensive approach to addressing elder justice issues.
- Expanding support in the U.S. Senate for elder justice legislation.
- Expedited action on this legislation in the committees of jurisdiction.
- Ensuring House action on elder justice legislation.
We urge you or your organization to join the Elder Justice Coalition today. Please contact us in the office of the National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse at email@example.com or by phone at 202-682-4140, if you are interested in joining the members of the Coalition as we work toward achieving elder justice in America. Please provide your full name and the name of the organization, your e-mail, address and phone number.
We hope you will give your support to the Elder Justice Coalition.
