Advocating for what is important to our members and giving you a voice at the state and federal levels is a priority for AARP Minnesota. Your voice matters. We work with local organizations and town and city officials on making our communities more livable and greater places to age with dignity and purpose.
This fall, candidates are taking to the stage trail to discuss critical issues facing our state and country in debates and forums. Debates and forums are more fun to watch with friends – host a watch party either in-person or virtually!
Americans 50+ are our nation's most powerful voters - and they will be the deciders in the 2022 elections. Voters across the country will be faced with new voting rules and may have to cast their ballots in a different polling place than they have before.
A new AARP survey of voters ages 25+ found an overwhelming majority (92%) agree that elected officials should support legislation that makes it easier for all workers to save for retirement from their paycheck. Further, 91% of voters support establishing a program if their employer does not currently offer them a way to save. More than 50 million American workers have no access to a retirement savings plan through their employers and more than a quarter (26%) of non-retired people have no retirement savings. On November 9 AARP Minnesota, Black Women’s Wealth Alliance, Bridgemakers, and Youthprise are joining forces to host a panel discussion on the challenges four generations – Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Boomers – face while saving for their futures.
