At MENC, we hope to engage the community to share the testifier voicemail number with elders to record their story. We want our elders to know that we hear them and that help is on the way. Our youth reporters contact all elders who leave their story. They review all stories with the MN Elder Justice Center to take the next step in recommending solutions for each elder who calls. These stories will be shared with the community on upcoming MENC podcast episodes.
Listen to the MENC “Take Action” campaign on KMOJ.
Tell Us Your Story billboards call on the community to talk to elders to let us know their needs online or via the testifier voicemail at 651.324.9561.
