Elder Justice Through a Racial Justice Lens

February 25 @ 1 p.m. - 3 p.m.

Elder Justice Through a Racial Justice Lens

Presenters:

  • Katie Block, M.S.W., M.P.H, Project Coordinator, National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL)
  • Juanita Davis, J.D., Associate Director, National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL)

This interactive webinar is designed for professionals working with older adults, including health care professionals, victim service providers, and government agencies. Through guided conversations and exercises, attendees will identify their own internal biases, as well as oppressive practices in the systems they work within. Attendees will be introduced to the Increasing Access to Healing Services and Just Outcomes for Older African American Crime Survivors toolkit created by the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life. Using the toolkit, attendees will increase their understanding of structural oppressions facing those they serve and learn to more effectively serve older survivors of color.

CEUs have been applied for and we will update the website once we are notified.
