​ADVOCACY ALERT — Act now...to Stamp Out Elder Abuse 

Via this fast form provided by NCOA, ask Congress to cosponsor the Stamp Out Elder Abuse Act . The form includes a draft email you can send to your Senators and Representatives. Act now, please. 

Stamp Out Elder Abuse Act includes Senate bill S.3594 and House bill H.R. 7061.

If enacted it will Congressionally mandate the U.S. Postal Service to issue a First-Class® semipostal ( fundraising ) stamp, which will raise additional funds to serve and save older Americans. 

Money from the stamp's sale will go to two federal agencies: the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services ( Administration on Community Living ) and the U.S. Department of Justice

This effort was started in 2000 in California by Helen Karr, Purpose Prize Fellow 2011 of Encore.org. 

I am honored to be working with the Elder Justice Coalition to gain introduction, sponsorship, and (with your help) enactment of the Stamp Out Elder Abuse Act of 2018. 

I am grateful to the National Council on Aging  for joining the Elder Justice Coalition in advocating for passage of the bipartisan Stamp Out Elder Abuse Act and posting its ask-now advocacy alert: Ask Congress to Cosponsor the Stamp Out Elder Abuse Act .
