AGE (Advocacy Group for Elders)

AGE is The Senior Source’s public policy program. Staff and volunteers share information about legislation and policies affecting older adults and help ensure that public officials are informed and updated on these issues. They address concerns at the local, state, and national levels, and empower older adults to effectively influence their elected officials.

AGE also has a long history of participating in Senior Day at the Capitol, organized by the Texas Senior Advocacy Coalition.  It’s a day that brings more than 4,000 enthusiastic older adults and aging professionals from across the state to the Capitol to highlight advocacy efforts and needs during Texas State Legislative sessions.

Every day, public officials at the local, state, and national level consider legislation and policy that determine the quality of life of older adults. But not all older adults know how to effectively communicate their needs to decision makers. The Advocacy Group for Elders (AGE) empowers older adults and all concerned citizens to get educated and get involved.
