2020 Minnesota World Elder Abuse Awareness Zoom Conference

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) was created by the United Nations International Plan of Action recognizing the significance of elder abuse as a growing social and financial concern, public health matter, and human rights issue. This year marks the 14th anniversary of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day in the United States and the 13th annual event in Minnesota. Each June, the Minnesota Elder Justice Center and its Center Partners sponsor a full-day professional education conference in conjunction with World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. The goal of this conference is to elevate the issue of elder abuse, neglect and financial exploitation and provide education on best practices for prevention and response.

This year’s conference will be held online via Zoom Conference Monday, August 24th & Tuesday, August 25th.  This conference is directed towards professionals who work with older and vulnerable adults. This includes Adult Protection Services, State Agencies, Non-Profits Organizations, Attorneys, Social Workers, representatives from the Criminal Justice System, Law Enforcement, Long-term Care Providers, and more.
