Producer Kim Jacobs will join the panel to discuss her film, which reveals what can happen to older adults when they are targeted for scams and abusive financial products. The film also reveals how they are fighting back, and becoming powerful advocates for themselves and others to help change the current landscape of economic security for older Americans. We met Kim when “Fleeced” was shown at the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) conference in Washington, DC, in March. We are delighted she offered to drive in from Indianapolis to join us for the event.
