Sexual violence against older adults: How can we start conversations?

Banner: Make a differenceJill Laster is the language access specialist for the National Sexual Violence Resource Center.

This Saturday (June 15) is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, and I wanted to write a brief post about thewonderful conversations, trainings, resources and research happening related to sexual violence in later life. I hope that they might be helpful to you as you celebrate World Elder Abuse Awareness Day or in your work as a whole.

I would also love to hear your thoughts. How can we start meaningful conversations in our communities on preventing sexual violence in later life? What materials or trainings have you found valuable?
