Host:

  • A public awareness event geared toward seniors.
  • A community walk
  • A High Tea
  • A purple dinner
  • A flash mob event 
  • A conference or training, focused on elder abuse awareness and available community resources.
  • A public awareness activity that includes politicians, seniors, local programs, survivors of abuse, and others


Communicate:

  • Send out a press release, hold a press conference, or submit an editorial to discuss elder abuse awareness and prevention efforts.
  • Develop a PSA on elder abuse with a local TV or radio station.
  • Ask local leaders, the Mayor, MP, MPP to release a Proclamation declaring June 15 as Elder Abuse Awareness Day.
  • Create a poster on elder abuse or use a poster created by a local elder abuse prevention organization.
  • Harness the power of social media to raise WEAAD’s profile and broadcast news of various events. Join our yearly social media campaign and share our content.
