Knowledge Is Power
June 10, 2019| Free
American seniors are being exploited financially, stripped of their constitutional rights, isolated, medicated, even jailed while their wills, trusts, and powers-of-attorney records are ignored. With no official research data complied, current estimates range from $36 billion to $3.5 trillion in losses annually. Leading up to World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15, 2019, there are a series of events in Washington, D.C. to address what is being called the silent crime of the 21st Century.
On Monday, June 10, 2019, Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy, Founder of Elder Dignity, will be speaking at the “Knowledge Is Power” conference hosted at the Bank Policy Institute, 600 13th St NW, #400 Washington, DC 20005. A former media executive, she will be presenting on “Getting Your Voice Heard: 5 Keys To Working With The Media,” alongside Nathan Baca, Investigative Reporter WJLA TV – ABC 7, Arlington, VA.
That evening she will participate in a panel discussion after the screening of “The Guardians” by Billie Mintz. The film describes the experience of victimized families in Las Vegas, Nevada from 2010-2017 who ultimately found a degree of justice by exposing the pattern and practice of fraudulent guardianships. The panel discussion will answer questions about how the movie was produced, how estate trafficking occurs in an equity court environment, and what you can do to avoid legal community exploitation. Location: Russell Senate Office Building, RM 325 – 2 Constitution Ave, NE Washington, DC 20002.
