AARP’s national accountability campaign ' Take a Stand' is well underway here in Florida, and our staff and volunteers are working hard to pressure candidates into telling voters how they would update Social Security for the 21st century and keep the promise for future generations. We want our leaders to make Social Security a priority and to put serious proposals on the table. If lawmakers fail to take action, Social Security benefits could be reduced by 25 percent by 2034, and future retirees could lose up to $10,000 a year in benefits.
With Election Day less than two months away, the candidates are hunting for your vote, and as they roll out the same speeches and sound bites, it seems like many have forgotten what’s really at stake here: Your money, your future, and the futures of your children and grandchildren.
As things continue to heat up right here in the nation’s grayest state, Florida, it’s our turn to keep the pressure on. Are you ready to take action and do your part? With offices across the state, there are more ways than one for you to get involved.
We are looking for potential volunteers who could help us 'Take a Stand' by:
— Attending a local open house
— Participating in a member-to-member outreach
— Hosting a coffee/event in their local neighborhood
— Attending presidential and congressional candidate events
— Writing a letter to elected officials
— Spreading awareness through social media
Join us as we continue down this journey to Social Security solvency.
Together, we can make history. Our doors are always open for you, so visit one of our offices today.
