Volunteers Go Virtual to Advocate for Change in Kentucky

Kentucky State Capitol

The General Assembly is scheduled to reconvene on Tuesday, Jan. 5. And although the pandemic will limit in-person access to lawmakers, AARP volunteers will be using virtual tools to advocate on behalf of older Kentuckians. 

Volunteers will monitor the 30-day session while engaging lawmakers remotely about AARP’s legislative priorities. They include lower prescription drug prices, financial security in retirement, support for unpaid family caregivers and promoting independent living.  

AARP Kentucky will also call on lawmakers and Gov. Andy Beshear (D) to enhance access to high-speed internet for telehealth services statewide.

AARP Kentucky’s Lobby Week, Feb. 8–13  in the capitol, will be held virtually this year. Learn more at aarp.org/ky.
