The Moorhead City Council awarded AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers from the Fargo-Moorhead area with the City of Moorhead’s MoorHeart Award.
In 2023, the Minnesota Legislature passed a law directing the Secretary of State to conduct a study of issues related to voter engagement, education, and improvements to the election system. A survey on voting in Minnesota is the first opportunity for the public to provide input on whether they vote, where they get information about how to vote, barriers they face when voting, and other items. The Office of the Secretary of State (OSS) asked Management Analysis and Development (MAD) to conduct this survey to gather initial public input and comment on what works well for voters in Minnesota, what barriers voters face, and what improvements could be made to the voting process.
Annual Award Recognizes Those Who Make a Powerful Difference in Their Community
AARP was proud to support Black Entrepreneurs Day at the Capitol on February 16. The event is presented by ShelettaMakesMeLaugh.com, a small business founded by podcast entrepreneur Sheletta Brundidge.
Making a difference doesn't stop as you age. Millions of older adults are using their experience to give back, to solve problems, and to change lives. The AARP® PurposePrize® award honors extraordinary individuals who use their lived experiences to make a better future for all.
Scammers don’t take a holiday break. That’s why the AARP Fraud Watch Network™ offers a full range of free tools and resources to help you spot and avoid common scams during the holidays and throughout the new year.
December 4 to 8, 2023 is Older Driver Safety Awareness Week (ODSAW), a time to empower older adults to improve their safety on the nation’s roadways. This is important because – even though they are safe drivers overall – older drivers are more vulnerable to severe injury or even death when involved in a vehicle crash.
The heart of AARP Minnesota's work revolves around our volunteers. We are grateful to our volunteers who bring to life AARP’s purpose to empower people to choose how they live as they age. AARP volunteers are skilled, dedicated and passionate about giving back to their communities and helping the 50-plus population live their best lives.
Sara Barsel has been awarded the 2023 AARP Andrus Award for Community Service for Minnesota. The annual award is AARP’s most prestigious and visible volunteer award. It recognizes individuals who are sharing their experience, talent and skills to enrich their communities in ways that are consistent with AARP’s purpose and vision. Their commitment to volunteer service embodies AARP's founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, belief in the power of ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
The generation gap is often used to define and separate people, but it holds the power to strengthen communities and teach across generational lines.
