City Hall to Light up Purple for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

Tonight, City Hall will light up purple to mark World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

It is estimated that 1 in 6 seniors globally experience elder abuse. The BC Association of Community Response Networks (BC CRN) engages communities throughout BC in June for World Elder Abuse Awareness Month to help create a national conversation around elder abuse prevention, and help spread awareness around what can be done to uphold and protect the rights of older adults in our community.
