Shining a Spotlight on America's Silent Crisis: Elder Abuse

THE HUB: An estimated 5 million seniors in the U.S. are victims of elder abuse each year. To address this crisis, WITNESS and the National Council on Aging are using video to help pass the Elder Justice Act (EJA), holistic legislation that will help ensure citizens age with personal security and dignity. Join us today, World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, to break the silence and pass the EJA.
