WEAAD is commemorated on June 15th every year – The day is an opportunity for people or organizations to take action to protect older people by raising awareness about elder abuse, why it occurs, and what we can do to stop it. We can act collectively to support justice for all.
WEAAD is a way to renew our commitment to preserving the rights of older adults – including the basic human right to live with dignity, free from abuse and neglect.
Across South Carolina, community partners are joining one another in solidarity to support older adults aging peacefully and respectfully in our state every Wednesday in June. Put on your purple and join us at the events listed below
