Capitol To Be Illuminated In Purple; Proclamation Launches State Efforts

Tennessee Department of Human ServicesNashville, TN – Since 2006, when purple was chosen as the “awareness color” for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD), Tennessee — which acknowledges the annual effort through a series of events statewide — has played its part in “lighting the way” to promote a better understanding of abuse and neglect of elderly and vulnerable adults. This year is no exception.

The Tennessee Vulnerable Adult Coalition (TVAC) is partnering with the Department of Human Services and the Commission on Aging and Disability in efforts designed to stem the growing problems of abuse (whether physical, sexual or emotional), neglect, and financial exploitation of elderly and vulnerable adults.
