Sources on Bullying of Senior Citizens and Persons with Disabilities in Housing

Our primary mission is to advocate for the elimination of bullying that victimizes elderly persons and people living with disability in public and subsidized housing. We realize that bullying in non-subsidized housing for older people and persons with disabilities is common and unacceptable. This is not just a problem in Massachusetts or even the United States. It is a worldwide problem. Education is a basic component of our work. Compiled by Bonny Zeh, this resource assembles key online publications related to bullying that takes place in multi-family housing and is presented under the following headings:

  • Resources addressed to management and professionals
  • News sources, listed by location to show widespread distribution and growing awareness of bullying
  • Blogs and other social media
  • Videos showing bullying
