Elder Justice, Protection Orders, and COVID-19

As our country has confronted the COVID-19 pandemic, it has necessitated profound changes in the way we offer services to older survivors of abuse, and in victims’ ability to access needed supports. This webinar will explore the challenges and opportunities that arise in working with older survivors during a pandemic, with a particular focus on issuance, service, and enforcement of protection orders.
