Congratulations to Mayor Rahm Emanuel for receiving the American Society on Aging's Public Policy Award for his support of the Elder Justice Act. The ASA is currently holding their 2013 Aging in America Conference in Chicago and invited the Mayor to speak and receive the award on opening night. As Mayor Emanuel noted in his speech, "For the first time, the law is on the side of our parents and grandparents rather than working against them."
