Vulnerable Adult Justice Project

Minnesota's Advocacy Collaborative to Protect Vulnerable Adults

 

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

---------------------------------

Founded in 2007 and adminstrativley housed at the Center for Elder Justice and Policy at the William Mitchell College of Law, the Vulnerable Adult Justice Project (VAJP) is a unique advocacy collaborative. With its dedication to improving laws and resources to protect vulnerable adults, VAJP is one reason that Minnesota stands as a leader among states in vulnerable adult protection.

 

Acting through legislative, policy, and educational efforts, the VAJP exists to protect Minnesota‚Äôs most vulnerable citizens from various forms of maltreatment, including abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation. Participants in the VAJP include professionals from adult protection agencies, public advocacy organizations, elder and disability organizations, health care providers, law enforcement, city and county attorneys, private attorneys, and other government organizations. The group provides a forum for experts who work with and for vulnerable adults to weigh, debate, and ultimately advocate for policies and safeguards that better protect vulnerable Minnesotans.    

      

 

The Vulnerable Adult Justice Project is building a new website with up-to-date information and new features.  Watch for more information and new resources in September 2012.
