Justice for All: Ending Elder Abuse, Neglect and Financial Exploitation

The Senate Special Committee on Aging held a hearing entitled, Justice for All: Ending Elder Abuse, Neglect and Financial Exploitation, on March 2.  Futures Without Violence, formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund, President and Founder Esta Soler submitted testimony for the record.  Soler’s testimony emphasizes that part of the solution to ending elder abuse lies in training judges and law enforcement personnel to better recognize and respond to it. These leaders are in a unique position to help.   Futures Without Violence has been training judges and prosecutors to recognize and understand the dynamics of domestic and sexual violence for more than a decade.  In recent years, we have expanded the trainings to address elder abuse as well.
