AARP Arizona is thrilled to have Brendon Blake as the new Associate State Director of Advocacy. Brendon works as a member of the state team in collaboration with the national office to promote AARP’s strategic advocacy issues. He has been part of the AARP AZ State office team for the last 5 years, “It’s an honor and a pleasure to replace my mentor Steve Jennings and I am thrilled to be leading our advocacy efforts in the state” said Brendon. “Steve left an incredible foundation of relationships and achievements he spent years cultivating, I’m both humbled and confident in my ability to fill his shoes with the amazing team of staff and volunteers around me”. His work during the past year as a Senior Program Specialist has resulted in increased AARP visibility at the AZ legislation and the AZ Corporation Commission with issues such as long-term care, utilities and Rx pricing to name a few.
This June, AARP proudly celebrates Black Music Month—a time to recognize and applaud the rich impact of African American music on our country’s history. Over the centuries, Black music has evolved and triumphed, not only shaping America’s traditions but also preserving the experiences and culture of the Black community. From joy and success to pain and perseverance, Black artists continue to create emotional content with palpable lyrics and rhythms that unite and inspire millions.

As we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month in this year of heightened awareness around equality and social justice, we are reminded of how positive change happens only when someone decides to lead. We are reminded of those men and women who, often in the face of great obstacles, dedicated their lives to serving something bigger than themselves, inspiring others and giving us all a path to a better tomorrow.
