National Day of Action for Older Adults, Tuesday, June 23

LeadingAge is calling on all Americans to Act for Older Adults. LeadingAge is an association of nonprofit organizations providing older adults that came together in 1961, with a mission of learning from each other, and advocating together to inspire a new and different view of aging in the USA.  The 5,000+ members and partners include not-for-profit organizations representing the entire field of aging services, 38 state partners, hundreds of businesses, consumer groups, foundations and research partners.

Leading Age makes it easy to take Action. They suggest several ways in which each of us can join the campaign to improve services for older adults in the USA (as copied below.) To act on any of the suggestions, go to their website by clicking the image below.

Across the country, executives, care workers, residents, and their families and friends are reaching out to demand that Congress enact comprehensive relief for older Americans. Join us!

Contact Congress

Members of Congress need to hear from providers who are on the front lines of this pandemic caring for and supporting residents, clients, staff, and families. Tell your lawmakers to prioritize older adults NOW by calling or sending a personalized message to your members of Congress.

Meet with Your Member of Congress

Schedule a virtual congressional meeting with your members of Congress. Your local congressional office wants to hear from you. Your story is very powerful in educating our leaders on what is needed. Visit our virtual congressional meeting page for resources to set up your meeting and tell your story.

Join the Sign-on Letter

We’re asking every LeadingAge member organization to add its name to our COVID-19 legislative asks. Signing on takes just a few moments — but will have incredible impact on Capitol Hill. Be sure YOUR organization is counted among supporters!
