Call to Action: Elder Justice Act
On March 26, 2009, Elder Financial Protection Network (EFPN) hosted the 5th Annual Call to Action event, launching a national campaign to pass the Elder Justice Act. On May 12, 2009 in conjunction with the release of Older Women's Leagues' (OWL) Mother’s Day Report on the impact of elder abuse in America, EFPN launched this online petition. To date, nearly 3000 persons across the United States and beyond have raised their voices to Congress by signing this petition. Thank you for supporting this effort.
On Sunday, March 22, 2010 Congress passed The Elder Justice Act. Our thanks to the 2,847 persons who raised their voices and signed our iPetition to demand protection for elder Americans. For more information see The Elder Justice Coalition.
