The Elder Justice Coalition, through national and grassroots advocacy, educational briefings, media outreach, research, and information dissemination seeks to:

  • Increase public awareness of the tragedy of elder abuse, neglect and exploitation at the local, state, and national levels.
  • Increase awareness, support, and funding for the Elder Justice Act in the Senate and House of Representatives as a comprehensive approach to addressing elder justice issues.
  • Monitor and appropriately influence other relevant legislation and regulations that pertain to the prevention of elder abuse, neglect and financial exploitation.
National Center on Elder Abuse
ncea.acl.gov

The goal of the NCEA is to improve the national response to elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation by gathering, housing, disseminating, and stimulating innovative, validated methods of research, practice policy and education. Our objectives are to:

  • Increase the identification and reporting of elder abuse by providing guidance for programs that serve older adults, and by developing and disseminating information for professionals.
  • Improve the ability of those in the aging network to detect, intervene, and prevent abuse by providing practical tools and technical assistance, as well as collaborating on pioneering approaches to improve practice.
  • Stimulate sustainable and innovative systems-change by fostering the development of programs, models, and initiatives which will ultimately decrease the incidence of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation.
Colorado Senior Lobby

Colorado Senior Lobby is the only non-partisan, non-affiliated, all-volunteer non-profit that has been serving the entire spectrum – every stripe and category – of Colorado seniors for 38 years; helping those seniors learn more about how public policy and resource allocation to senior-related issues intersect – and most importantly, how to become active participants in public processes.

For CSL, advocacy and “lobbying” are one in the same. When we lobby, we are advocating for (or against) public policy issues that impact older Coloradans. There are many steps involved in effective advocacy, and CSL volunteers may select one or more of them as their way to be involved:

Administration for Community Living
acl.gov

The Administration for Community Living was created around the fundamental principle that older adults and people of all ages with disabilities should be able to live where they choose, with the people they choose, and with the ability to participate fully in their communities.

By funding services and supports provided by networks of community-based organizations, and with investments in research, education, and innovation, ACL helps make this principle a reality for millions of Americans.

ACL currently is seeking comments and input on a variety of issues and initiatives. You also will find closed comment opportunities.
