One of the greatest ways we can improve seniors’ lives is to ensure that our communities are built upon age-friendly public policies. Get involved in our advocacy efforts to combat ageism, promote a positive depiction of aging, and ensure the funding and programs seniors need to thrive.
Why Advocate for Seniors?
Everyone is affected by aging policy, whether by financially supporting programs through tax dollars, utilizing aging programs themselves, or acting as a caregiver to an elderly friend and family member. By advocating on behalf of seniors, you can help create an age-friendly community that helps older adults thrive and reduces the financial strain on the community as a whole.
