WCEJC An Age for Justice Screening

      An Age for Justice is a short documentary (18 minutes) that brings you into the homes of courageous American elders, to hear their poignant and real stories about the abuse, neglect, and exploitation they have experienced. This intimate story reveals a hidden crisis harming older Americans in every community across the country. By uniting the voices of abused elders, family members and experts from across the nation, An Age for Justice brings the issue of elder abuse out of the shadows and asks us to imagine what we would do if someone we knew was a victim of elder abuse, and we were in a position to stop it. Contact the WCEJC to arrange a screening and presentation for your organization.
