Advocacy & National Media Efforts
LeadingAge’s national rapid-response media strategy continues as part of the Act4Older Adults. Last week, we issued several media statements and backgrounders to pressure the administration to enhance its leadership on the virus response. Visit the Driving the Conversation page often for all our statements, as well as select media coverage -- which you can use as the basis of your own local media materials. Select releases from last week follow:

We also sent out two advocacy action alerts to urge you and all our advocates around the country to join our efforts. It’s not too late to email or phone your representatives -- and watch for more action alerts this week and throughout July.
