To assist communities in increasing awareness of the issue of abuse in later life, NCALL has created a series of posters and web graphics for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (June 15), and National Stalking Awareness Month (January), Sexual Assault Awareness Month (April) and Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October).  Please see below for more information.

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) is recognized annually on or around the 15th of June. Since its inception in 2006, communities throughout the country and around the world have used this day to raise the visibility of elder abuse by sharing information about abuse, neglect, and exploitation in later life and promoting the resources and services that work to increase victim safety and improve offender accountability.

The intent of SAAM is to promote national unity in voice and action regarding sexual assault issues, to encourage interaction and feedback from across the nation, and to build momentum based on the previous years’ SAAM activities.
