This meeting has ended. Full video from the meeting will be posted on this page as soon as it is available.

The Elder Justice Coordinating Council (EJCC) brings together leaders from across the federal government to address issues of elder justice nationally.

The Spring 2016 EJCC meeting built on momentum from the 2015 White House Conference on Aging and explored ways to further incorporate elder justice into the work of agencies throughout the federal government. During the meeting, national experts from government and private industry discussed the issues of elder abuse research, the financial services industry’s response to elder abuse and financial exploitation, and developments in training about elder abuse across a variety of fields.

Read some of the top tweets from the meeting and a blog post from Assistant Secretary for Aging Kathy Greenlee reflecting on the EJCC meeting, the progress that has been made in the five years since the EJCC was established, and the future of the elder justice movement.
