AARP Arizona is involved in the legislative process by advocating for issues important to the 50+ population, including long-term care, caregiving, housing, transportation, and consumer protection, as well as by fighting to protect existing programs and services.
This Hispanic Heritage Month, AARP is proud to honor the life and legacy of Congressman Ed Pastor through our Vivan Las Voces oral history program, capturing the stories of Latinos for future generations to come. Earlier this year, Congressman Pastor’s beloved wife, Verma, and daughter, Laura, sat down with StoryCorps to pay tribute to their husband and father, and his lasting impact on his community. Their memorable conversation has been transformed into a three-minute animation video produced by our program partner, StoryCorps. I am honored to share the Vivan Las Voces animation video celebrating Arizona’s first Latino congressman, Ed Pastor. We hope you enjoy watching!
AARP Foundation, through a generous grant from Google.org, is offering the new Digital Skills Ready@50+™ initiative to meet a pressing need: digital skills training for people over 50 who are living with low income, with a particular focus on women and people of color.
