Read Accounts from Elder Justice Fellows


With funding from OVC, the Equal Justice Works Elder Justice Program mobilized Fellows to help address the gap in civil legal services for victims of elder abuse and exploitation. Since 2020, the Fellows have been providing holistic services in-person or virtually so that they can obtain justice for their clients and help them restore their dignity, safety, and financial wellbeing.

In a recent blog post, Shedding Light on Elder Abuse & Exploitation During the Pandemic, Equal Justice Works shared the experiences of two fellows. On this World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, learn more about how these fellows are empowering older adults.
