AARP Michigan advocacy staff and volunteers work with state legislators on a variety of issues, including: family caregiving, ensuring affordable utility rates, supporting veterans, financial security, health security, and preventing elder abuse and exploitation.
See our advocacy report on the recently concluded legislative session here:
Older adults who have a desire to help their state and community create a more secure future for those 50-plus might want to assist the advocacy team as a volunteer. As an advocacy volunteer you will work with state and federal elected officials, share the AARP legislative agenda and help build and maintain relationships with office holders.
The advocacy team is vital to achieving AARP’s social mission in Michigan. And we can’t do an effective job without committed volunteers.

We hope to hear from you soon! Together, we can help people turn their goals and dreams into real possibilities, strengthen our communities and fight for the issues that matter most to families.
