The goal of the Minnesota Elder Nonviolence Coalition initiative is to address violence against elders in all forms in primarily under-served communities throughout the Great State of Minnesota. This is a grass roots cultural community outreach initiative that will capture testimony from elders that will serve to shine a spotlight on elder violence at home, in nursing facilities, senior daycare centers, on public transportation and address egregious predatory financial exploitation that will be delivered in a way that educates communities to adopt elder nonviolence as a way of living.
