COVID-19 Continues to Disproportionately Impact People of Color and Older People
The data continues to show that the older people are, the higher their risk of serious illness and death from COVID-19. And since the start of the pandemic Black and Latinx have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 across the country in urban, suburban and rural areas and across all age groups, as noted by the NY Times . Read our staff member Renee Chenault Fattah’s article in on racial disparities of COVID-19 in The Philadelphia Tribune here.
Fighting COVID-19 Scams
and Fraud Targeting Older People
Scammers and perpetrators of crime have used this pandemic to target older people. SeniorLAW Center fights back. We are grateful for our partners who have enthusiastically supported us in our efforts to help older Pennsylvanians. Special thanks to the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency which supports our work for older victims of crime, our pro bono partners DLA Piper and GE HealthCare for preparing research memos on COVID-19 related scams and frauds targeting older people and educational flyers on ways to avoid exploitation. See these excellent educational pieces below. Click on each to see our collection of outreach flyers on emergency areas of law for older people during this pandemic.
