Every year, far too many of our seniors face elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation. The Elder Justice Coordinating Council is a unique opportunity that demonstrates federal leadership and commitment to addressing these issues. On October 11, 2012, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius held the inaugural meeting of the Elder Justice Coordinating Council. The Secretary was joined at the meeting by Attorney General Eric Holder, then Social Security Commissioner Michael Astrue, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut), and representatives of other member federal departments and agencies.
