2014 Year-End Reflection #4: Increasing Media Attention

We are very appreciative of the increasing media attention of guardianship and conservatorship abuse, including the hard-hitting Columbus Dispatch expose, Adam Walser’s ABC Action News I-Team’s continuing coverage (including celebrating their award of the prestigious DuPont Award for their series), individual reporters’ coverage of multiple cases in their respective states, a free-lance reporter whose goal is to do a story in every state; and the resultant unscrupulous guardians exposed for theft or other elder abuse.

We thank Marti Oakley for her passion for the cause and for her Internet talk radio shows on guardianship abuse:  T.S. Radio.    We likewise thank advocate Bev Cooper for her weekly Illinois cable show: North Shore "Live": Cooper's Corner.

We have teamed up with many new Social Media pages with whom we share posts:
Boomers Against Elder Abuse
Bendigo Banksters
Save Dorothy Wilson, Legally Kidnapped
Rescue Gary Harvey
GRADE (Guardianship Reform Advocates for the Disabled-Elderly
Elders Against Guardianship
Elder Advocates
Keep Marise Home With Family
Florida Guardianship Law Talking Points
Guardianship Laws
Archangels of Justice
Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation Awareness
Arizona Probate Reform

And we appreciate every social media "like" and "share" because, together we get the word out farther and faster.
Thank you to the power of the press and everyone else who raises awareness of guardianship abuse.

It's encouraging that there has been so much media attention this past year and I hope it's indicative that next year will be even better!

Adam Walser and his team are so deserving of the Dupont. Congratulations to all of them.

I am glad to see many people working FB and Twitter. And thank you to all the reporters who have tackled this injustice so well.
