Sadly, Iowa is one of only five states that do not have independent Elder Abuse laws. But students from Beaman, Conrad, Liscomb, Union, and Whitten (BCLUW) Middle School are trying to change that. They have created an awareness group and Facebook page about Iowa Elder Abuse Awareness. Here, the students are pictured with State Senator Steve Sodders (IA-36) during a visit to the Senate last week. Please search for the group on Facebook and check out their efforts to bring attention to this noble and worthy cause!
