HONORARY CHAIR:

Philip C. Marshall, elder justice advocate and grandson of Brooke Astor

Philip Marshall and Jenefer Duane, Call to Action 2010“My grandmother—philanthropist and ‘Grand Dame’ of New York, Brooke Astor—would never want to be known as America’s most famous case of elder abuse. Nor did she, while in the throes of dementia, choose to be victimized —deprived, manipulated and robbed—all as part of a calculated ‘scheme to defraud.’ Yet, the sad circumstances surrounding my grandmother have informed a timely and timeless cause that may be her greatest and most lasting legacy.” —Philip C. Marshall, elder justice advocate and grandson of Brooke Astor, Honorary Chair

“This year’s 8th Annual Call to Action Conference promises to be our most dynamic event ever! Join us for a series of  lively conversations with the country’s most renowned Elder Financial Abuse Advocates. Joining us will be representatives from the financial, legal, law enforcement, social service and elder justice communities. You won’t want to miss this!” —Jenefer Duane, Founder & CEO, EFPN

One Response to Call To Action 2011: San Francisco

  1. AnnaBelle D Haskins says:

    I have become an advocate for elders, due to the financial abuse done to my (dying) aunt at the time. I have hit a brick wall with the bank who allowed the crime to happen. I will not stop until I find help or learn more about being a viable advocate for others as well. I am tired of elders being ignored and those who try and help them.
