SeniorLAW Center

2019 Champions of Justice

U.S. Senator Bob Casey (PA) – Champion of Justice
Senator Casey, currently serves as the Ranking Member of the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging. He is a leading voice for older people, the vulnerable and the disenfranchised. SeniorLAW partnered with the senator on support for grandparents raising grandchildren, fighting guardianship abuse, and ensuring due process and right to counsel for all. Senator Casey has led the way for the nation to serve “The Greatest Generation” – older Americans who are the foundation of our country and an important focus of SeniorLAW Center’s four decades of legal services and advocacy. We are proud to have worked with the Senator and his stellar teams to raise the voices of older Americans and pursue justice for them and their families.

She is a leader in court-based access to justice initiatives, from the First Judicial District to the PA Supreme Court’s Advisory Council on Elder Justice in the Courts to Mental Health Court and much more.

We are proud to honor her leadership.
