Take The Pledge

Stop the Silence. Promote Awareness. Raise your Voice.

  • 1 to 2 million Americans age 65+ report having been abused by a loved one or someone they depend on for care.
  • Only 1 in 14 incidents of elder abuse are ever reported to authorities.
  • Only 1 in 25 cases of financial exploitation are ever reported, meaning there may be at least 5 million financial abuse victims each year.

You can do your part to end the silent epidemic of elder abuse by taking the pledge to stand up against elder abuse. There are 10,000 people who are turning 65 each and every day (Pew Research Center), and we are rapidly approaching a time where nearly 50% of the population will be 65 or older. Together, we can end the silence of elder abuse by standing united and raising our voices against this growing problem. 

Show your support in this movement, by pledging to end the silence, raising awareness in your community, and speaking up against elder abuse.


"Kerri Kasem is working to honor our elderly. . by God it is very important and obligation to dignify our eldery...Freedom from isolation. Go Kerri Kasem. Thank you." V. Amaral

"Without stimulation and love, people die." THANKS for pointing out that isolation is elder abuse." S. White

"I can't thank you enough for starting this conversation. Your dad would be so proud. He is smiling watching you change such an important part of wishes that I am sure were already planned. It breaks my heart for all the pain you endure to get something that should not even be a fight. You are inspirational and have helped me keep my head on straight knowing how hard you are working. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." R. Bove

"You are amazing! Keep up the fight for all those that can't." S. Benton

    Susan Huff – met you in front of the courthouse in Clark County, Vancouver, WA. I spoke with your team as I was going into the courthouse to get an Order to prohibit my brother (So. Cal. attorney and my brother) from exploiting my mother. I spoke with you after I was granted an Order and a TRO with weapons. I want to help in the fight!!

    I am an elderly person myself, and I am concerned with the plight of the elderly in Uganda. I am starting an organization for the elderly in Uganda that will echo the voice of the elderly voiceless in our country. I am requesting your support and partnership to achieve the best that can be achieved through our combined efforts

    I have received your profile and I have picked much interest to work with you. As you are aware that Uganda is a developing nation on the African Continent has challenges which are continuous and it has classified a certain groups of people from poor, middle and reach. In this case elder people surfer most particularly in Kibuku District eastern region.
