Policy and Advocacy

Policy and Advocacy

ASA may not send staffers to Capitol Hill to advocate on behalf of elders, but many organizations in our membership community certainly do. These advocates and stakeholders—many of them prominent policymakers in the aging services network—fill us in on a regular basis on their progress, whether it be fighting for elder justice, defending Social Security, supporting the beneficial policies embedded in the Affordable Care Act or pressuring a reauthorization of the Older Americans Act. Find the inside scoop on new policies affecting older adults and advocacy in the works here. And check often as the gears of government grind on: our members are there at the forefront to report on this complex landscape.
