May is Older Americans Month!

We invite you to join the Administration for Community Living (ACL) and others in honoring and celebrating the lives, strengths, contributions, and accomplishments of older Americans during Older Americans Month (OAM). ACL designed the 2017 OAM theme, Age Out Loud, to give aging a new voice—one that reflects what today’s older adults have to say.

This year’s theme shines a light on many important trends. More than ever before, older Americans are working longer, trying new things, and engaging in their communities. They’re taking charge, striving for wellness, focusing on independence, and advocating for themselves and others. What it means to age has changed, and OAM 2017 is a perfect opportunity to recognize and celebrate what getting older looks like today.

Find materials, resources, and additional information by visiting ACL’s OAM webpage: https://oam.acl.gov/.

Since 1981, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) has challenged communities to extend their vision of crime victims’ rights and services to reach every victim of crime. The 2017 theme— Strength. Resilience. Justice.—reflects a vision for the future in which all victims are strengthened by the response they receive, organizations are resilient in response to challenges, and communities are able to seek collective justice and healing.
