AGE (Advocacy Group for Elders)
AGE is The Senior Source’s public policy program. AGE 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 is also a member of the Texas Senior Advocacy Coalition, which organizes Senior Day in Austin, bringing more than 4,000 enthusiastic older adults to the Capitol to kick-off advocacy efforts during sessions of the Texas State Legislative. The Senior Source sponsors busses to bring seniors from greater Dallas to this day-long event.
Join the Advocacy Group for Elders (AGE) Council
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.
