The state will have new members of Congress in January, and AARP wants to be sure they focus on issues of concern to older citizens, like family caregiving and financial security.

AARP Massachusetts is looking for advocacy volunteers to join a team that will visit with elected officials, staff tables at local events, give presentations in the community and write letters to the editor.

To learn more about how to become an advocacy volunteer, email ahodge@aarp.org or call 866-448-3621 toll-free.
