“When I am an elder, I want to hear my culture being danced and sung.” – Youth Activist from ANDVSA's When I'm an Elder Campaign

June 15 marks World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD), a time to honor survivors of elder abuse, raise awareness, and advance efforts to prevent this global social issue that impacts the health and human rights of older persons worldwide. WEEAD coincides with the national observance of National LGBTQ Pride Month, reminding us of the importance of creating and sustaining welcome and inclusive services for older adults living at the intersections of oppression.

This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter lifts up prevention strategies that honor the value elders bring to our communities, especially as it relates to the positive development of new generations. Look inside for a special highlight on this year's IPV Prevention Council reception!

PreventIPV is celebrating WEAAD by spotlighting When I’m an Elder from the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault as June's Prevention Tool of the Month. When I’m an Elder uses public service announcements (PSAs) featuring Alaskan youth to highlight the value of intergenerational dialogue to prevent violence across the lifespan and create a world without violence. By engaging across generations and honoring the resilience of our elders, we can build communities that are safe and healthy for all of us.
The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV) and National IPV Prevention Council were pleased to host the 3rd national Prevention Reception following the FVPSA State Coalitions and State Administrators Grantee Meeting on May 23rd in Miami, Florida. This reception showcased the innovate prevention work of DELTA IMPACT projects including:
  • California Partnership to End Domestic Violence
  • Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence
  • Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence
  • Idaho Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence
  • Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence
  • Ohio Domestic Violence Network
  • Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence

There is so much value and power in everyone's one thing, the catalyst for change or pivotal moment in our individual and collective stories. This year's message for Domestic Violence Awareness Month will explore the social transformation that can happen when our unique one things come together with intention and purpose for action.
