AARP invites YOU to 2016 Family Caregivers Day at the Capitol

Kentucky State Capitol

SAVE THE DATE – Wednesday, February 24, 2016

You’re invited to join AARP Kentucky volunteers for the 2016 Family Caregivers Day at the Capitol. This is your opportunity to support Kentucky’s 650,000 unpaid family caregivers caring for loved ones. It’s also your opportunity to meet your state legislators and talk one-on-one about the needs of family caregiving and retirement security in the 2016 General Assembly. Your presence in the State Capitol will help family caregivers and help to make their voice heard in Frankfort.

“This is an opportunity for our members to share their thoughts and concerns with the people who represent them in Frankfort,” said Jim Kimbrough, volunteer state president.   “It demonstrates to lawmakers that we’re watching, we’re involved with the process, and that the decisions they make have a real impact on real people.”

AARP Kentucky is planning a series of trainings sessions in advance to prepare volunteers on legislative issues, scheduling legislative meetings and talking with legislators and how to get around in the Capitol.
