Respecting Elders: Communities against Abuse
RECAA is an organization founded by elders from Montreal’s cultural communities who work across age, gender and ethnic lines to raise awareness of elder mistreatment and to promote a culture of respect for all elders. We are united by a common goal: to work towards cultivating respect for elders within families and society. We want our children and grand children to grow up safe, strong and free. We see the necessity now more than ever to work amongst ourselves and with other community groups to combat the racism, ageism, sexism, and classism that touches our entire globalized world.
