As advocates for all Wisconsinites as we age, we prefer to look at the Joint Finance Committee’s decision to remove Medicaid expansion from the proposed 2019-21 budget as simply the first mile of a marathon. The race has started, but it's far, far from over.

Jan Thornberg testifying
We are inviting all AARP members and anyone else from the general public to join us at any or all of the state’s four state budget hearings this month in Janesville, Oak Creek, River Falls and Green Bay. At each of these hearings we will have an AARP Wisconsin volunteer advocate testify on a specific issue that we would like to see addressed in the state’s 2019-2021 state budget.
Caregiving blog social 3
We often refer to family caregivers as Wisconsin’s unsung heroes, flying under the radar for little or no money while providing vital care that allows their loved ones to continue living in their homes and communities as long as possible.
livable communities
Regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or income, we can all agree that improvements to our communities benefit everyone. And we all want the same things: safe, accessible and affordable places to live for you and your family, access to the shops, businesses and community services that you interact with every day, and to live near friends, family and people you can rely on.
