Dear Colleague:

Did you know that approximately
1 in 10 Americans
aged 60 and older have experienced elder abuse?  Forms of elder abuse can include physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, financial exploitation, and neglect.   

In order to combat this serious and potentially growing problem, we have formed the bipartisan Elder Justice Caucus.  We invite you to join the caucus and show your support for seniors.  

 One in every seven Americans is over the age of 65.  By 2060, there will be more than 98 million seniors – more than double the senior population in 2013.  With this unprecedented growth, it is critical that we advocate for protections for our older Americans. 
The Elder Justice Caucus will help to unify a voice in Congress by bringing together members with a shared interest in preventing elder abuse.

Please contact Allison Smith (Bonamici) at
  or Deena Tauster (King) at
 with questions or to join the caucus.
