2018 WEAAD Virtual Art Gallery

2018 WEAAD Virtual Art Gallery

The 2018 World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD), the Committee is promoting the Roadmap’s priority of Education in The Road to Elder Justice – WEAAD Virtual Art Gallery. This virtual art gallery invites people to create and submit art that provides an artistic representation of the aging process with one or all of the following themes: equality and justice, respect, empowerment, connections, engagement, community, and happiness. This gallery not only celebrates the Roadmap’s progress, but it also promotes public awareness of how building supportive communities as we age and combatting ageism (cultural biases against aging) can be a tool in preventing and addressing elder abuse.

Special Thanks to Judith D. Tamkin

We are sincerely appreciative to Judith D. Tamkin for her gift to help establish the USC Center on Elder Mistreatment’s website. Her deep and personal commitment to eradicating elder abuse is helping to reshape our understanding of elder abuse and ultimately save innumerable older adults from abuse and neglect.
