Attorney General William Tong to Host Elder Justice Forum at West Hartford Senior Center

‘Elder Justice Affects Us All’ will be the topic of an Elder Justice Forum will be held at the Bishops Corner Senior Center in West Hartford.


Elder justice issues affect everyone in our community and touch upon many aspects of our lives. Issues affecting older adults can range from age-based discrimination in the workplace to elder abuse, neglect, fraud, and exploitation. To focus attention on these elder justice issues and concerns, the West Hartford Senior Citizens Advisory Commission and the West Hartford Senior Center are hosting an Elder Justice Forum featuring Attorney General William Tong.

Attorney General Tong is very committed to serving and aiding older adults. His office, in cooperation with the Coalition for Elder Justice in Connecticut (CEJC), has launched the Elder Justice Hotline – 1-860-808-5555 – a new resource to help older adults in Connecticut seek information, assistance, and justice.

The hotline will be staffed by the Attorney General’s Office Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Anyone calling after hours, is asked to please leave a message and the call will be returned as soon as possible.

The community is invited to attend the forum on Tuesday, Feb. 20 at 10 a.m. at the Bishops Corner Senior Center, 15 Starkel Road to learn more about the Elder Justice Hotline, as well as other issues affecting older adults.

Registration is required. To register, call  860-561-7683 or email [email protected].
