Futures Without Violence hosted a convening to address emerging strategies for preventing and responding to elder abuse outside the legal system, including restorative justice, economic justice, legal system off-ramps, and community partnerships.
As a result of attending this convening, participants can expect to:
- Define and apply models of restorative justice, economic justice, and survivor-defined elder justice to their respective programs and work
- Draft and share goals to enhance their community-based services to better serve older adults’ needs for alternatives to the criminal legal system
- Broaden their networks of allied organizations and professionals working to end elder abuse through a restorative and prevention-oriented lens
- Utilize tools and resources to advance equity for older adults
Community-based advocacy groups, elder justice coalitions, older adult service providers, culturally-specific programs, professionals, health care, and other thought leaders in the elder abuse field, community volunteers working with elders, tribal organizations, domestic and sexual violence programs, senior community centers, restorative justice practitioners, mediators, social workers, and other allied fields such as racial justice, economic justice, and public health.
