Time flies when you're blogging! We are proud to announce the two-year anniversary of NYCEAC's Elder Justice Dispatch Blog. Keeping in the tradition we began last year, in order to celebrate, we have summarized ten blogs from the past year and provide links to you for further reading. We are excited to share ten great blogs from the July 2013 - June 2014 stellar blog collection that collectively discuss myriad elder justice issues - from elder abuse in popular culture to podcast interviews with leaders in the field.

The NYC Elder Abuse Center (NYCEAC) actively engages key decision makers in discussions about elder abuse and neglect to:
- educate them about the complexities and prevalence of this problem; and
- inform them of vital NYC elder justice-related programs, including the work of NYCEAC.
To this end, NYCEAC, in partnership with the Council of Senior Centers and Services (CSCS) and the Geriatric Mental Health Alliance of NY (GMHA), initiated the Leadership Education Project (LEP) to further these goals. The aims of this project are to:
- identify key NYS/NYC decision-makers who should be informed about elder abuse issues and NYCEAC’s work; and
- develop and implement an action plan for engaging them on these issues.
We will share the results of this important project on this website, so please check here for that information in the Spring 2012.
