Today is Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Obama announced he was making that official. I can only imagine the media spins that are being constructed right now to cement in the public mind that it is only family and friends who abuse, neglect and exploit the elderly.
We know better. We know family and friends account for only 4-5 % of the abuse of the elderly. The remainder is at the hands of professionals who game the system in order to loot the estate. But mainstream media won't even mention that!
Tonights show will highlight many of the cases of professional predators operating within corrupt probate courts across the country that have stolen billions from the elderly while holding them prisoner in what usually turns out to be a sub-standard facility. Forced medication, anyone?
Please feel free to call in with your comments or questions.
In honor of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day which takes place on June 15, Peter Gwaltney of the Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation joins the show. Gwaltney talks about how the Foundation enables banks a way to earn CRA credit through the sponsorship of their program in senior housing facilities, HUD communities and Veterans homes in the form of community development loans, CRA-qualified investments and grants.
This radio segment will focus on our aging population, the impact this has on our society, the issue of ageism, and how community-based programs can work together to prevent and respond to abuse and neglect in later life.
Listeners will hear from experts on this topic from the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life and the University of California Irvine Center of Excellence on Elder Abuse & Neglect, with support being provided by the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence.

http://ncall.us/content/WEAAD World Elder Abuse Awareness Day Monday -June 15th , 2015 World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) is recognized annually on or around the 15th of June. Since its inception in 2006, communities throughout the country and around the world have used this day to raise the visibility of elder abuse by sharing information about abuse, neglect, and exploitation in later life and promoting the resources and services that work to increase victim safety and improve offender accountability.
Community Action for Animals (CAA) is a two member Memphis and Shelby County based group whose mission is to emphasize the importance of the prosecution of animal cruelty in Memphis and Shelby County. To accomplish its mission, CAA works to introduce humane legislation geared towards the specific needs of the community, to provide education about animal cruelty, and to increase public awareness of the importance and necessity of prosecuting animal cruelty.
Sanders has either written or been an active part of several laws, including the Memphis spay/neuter ordinance, the Memphis and Shelby County ban on the roadside sale of animals, and the recently passed Shelby County Companion Animal Care ordinance.

Tonight's special guest is Tim Fisher, a returning NAASCA family member who lives in the Las Vegas area and runs Juvenile Justice Now. Tim, a child abuse survivor, will be with us tonight to describe his experience, strength and hope. Tim was seven years old when he met his predator, a neighbor, teaching Sunday school at the Baptist church. Now Steve Friess has written an article about Tim's important work: One Survivor's Crusade Reveals a Plague of Errors in Nation's Sex Offender Registries. The subtitle: "Estimates of the number of entries with crucial mistakes run into the tens of thousands. One man—and pretty much only one man—is trying to fix them." Tim has told us in the past, "By the time I had reached my 14th birthday I had been sexually molested approximately 350 times over the course of seven years." He continues, "It took four years for me to become strong enough to come forward." Eventually he went to the Anaheim police and reported his abuse and name his predator. From start to finish it took a year almost to the day for him to be convicted. Eventually he took a plea of guilty to 49 counts of child molestation, lewd conducts involving a minor and with the use of force. Sadly although he was sentenced to 2 to 12 years he was released after serving just nine months. "I’m here to remind you that the abuse never stops for the victim," Tim says, "I encourage anyone who has been sexually abused to make a report even if it happened when you were a child." In the recently published article, Steve accompanies Tim to the home of his molester, a registered sex offender.

As we move deeper into the transition that is taking place on planet Earth, the Pleiadians tell us that the time has now come for us to start mastering the energetic tools that will enable us to consciously complete our awakening and self-healing process.
The new frequencies of light and sound that are now hitting the planet are awakening us to remembrance of and reconnection with our true Selves.
In each episode of this twice-monthly show, international teacher, author, healer, and Pleiadian Ambassador, Christine Day, will present a new body of information and transmissions of sacred tones and codes specifically designed to act as energetic keys to unlock the information residing within the matrix of our cellular structure.
One of the key messages of the Pleiadians is that we must accept our humanity and imperfections in order to facilitate the process of our own self-birthing into the Universal Consciousness. By integrating these human aspects of our Self with our Higher Nature we will more easily navigate our way through this transition.
Christine Day Online airs on the first and third Monday of each month at 2:30PM Central time.
National Infertility Awareness Week runs April 19-25. The week is sponsored by RESOLVE, a reproductive health advocacy organization. Visit their website to find a list of events nationwide.
Although 7.3 million women and couples experience some form of challenge conceiving in this country (or 1 in 8), infertility can leave one feeling extremely isolated
I spoke with Rev. Dr. Stacey Edwards-Dunn, founder of Fertility for Colored Girls, to talk more about resources available to all couples and some of the events her organization provides this week and beyond.
