Membership in NNSEJC
State or tribal elder justice coalitions are eligible for membership in NNSEJC. Our working definition of coalitions is: "an ongoing multidisciplinary state- (or tribal-) level collaborative with defined membership that is dedicated to identifying and addressing gaps or inadequacies in policy and practice related to elder abuse detection, prevention, and intervention." Besides coalitions, they may be called networks, councils, commissions, associations, partnerships, and task forces.
