With pedestrians facing dangers on roadways with no sidewalks, AARP Alabama is encouraging residents to conduct walk audits that evaluate the safety—or lack of it—in their communities. Audit findings are shared with elected officials and other local leaders.
Alabamians will vote Tuesday, Nov. 8, for governor, lieutenant governor, a U.S. senator, all seven U.S. House members, all members of the state legislature, and other statewide and local officials.
According to the FBI, con artists target older Americans to steal their banking information and identities. AARP Alabama is helping residents avoid becoming victims in many ways, including by hosting online tutorials, known as Fraud Watch Fridays, to provide details of common scams and how to steer clear of them. The sessions are being held at noon, on June 4 and 18, and on July 2, 16 and 30.
Scams cost Alabamians millions of dollars a year, and older adults are especially vulnerable. AARP Alabama is helping residents avoid becoming another statistic.
