Remarks as Prepared for Delivery by OVC Director Jessica E. Hart During the Elder Justice Program Kickoff Training Webinar

Good afternoon, everyone! It’s my pleasure to join you all today.

I’d like to begin by thanking Silvia Torres on my team that is here with us today and a big thanks to Equal Justice Works and Justice in Aging for putting this together and inviting me to speak.

For more than three decades Equal Justice Works has guided law students and lawyers into public service careers, with a focus on fighting for equal justice for all Americans. We are so excited they are managing OVC’s Elder Justice Program.
