Today’s National Day of Action for Older Adults

Aging services providers know that COVID-19 is not over! LeadingAge is still fighting for our members, your staff, clients, residents, and families. Today is our National Day of Action for Older Adults!

We ask every LeadingAge member organization to help ensure Congress hears our collective voice. Here’s how to do your part:

Calling Congress is easy. LeadingAge’s Joe Franco shows you how it works in this video.

Today’s virtual rally is part of the Act For Older Adults campaign urging Congress to enact legislation that delivers crucial resources. For too many months, pleas from older adults and aging services providers have gone unanswered. Together, we can ensure Congress hears their urgent call. Visit the campaign web page at leadingage.org/act to learn more.

Need more ideas on how you can take action today? Here are ten ways for your organization to join the fight. THANK YOU!
