The Network of Age-Friendly Communities in New York and forward-thinking communities across the state are increasing their focus on livability, walkability, community health, economic development and how these issues impact people of all ages. As New York State government, local governments, community partners, innovators, planners and the aging advocacy network chart their course in livability, AARP New York is pleased to convene leaders in this work. Please join us for the Third Annual Leading on Livability Summit:
One way you can take on the day is by volunteering. Volunteering has an enormous impact on the health and well-being of your local community. As an AARP volunteer, you are helping with the promise of a better life for you or someone else. Whether you would like to be an in-office support, speaker on advocacy issues, or helping at an event AARP has many ways that you can make a difference. Be a part of the AARP team and volunteer with us.
In continued celebration of Asian American/Pacific Islander Month, we’re highlighting AARP NY volunteer, Margaret Chung-Reed, whose parents are from Hong Kong, China, and who has lived on Long Island for 27 years.
In celebration of Asian American/Pacific Islander Month, AARP NY is featuring profiles of members and volunteers on Long Island. Mona Ng has been an active volunteer since 2015 and has lived on Long Island for over 30 years. She also spends her time volunteering at a Chinese cultural center, a hospital and at senior centers on the island and says “Giving back to the community gives me a lot of satisfaction.” Her avid volunteerism garnered her a nomination last year for North Hempstead’s annual May W. Newburger Women's Roll of Honor.
AARP NY is sponsoring free shred events as part of “Operation: Stop Scams,” a series of free shredding events around the state, from Upstate to Long Island. From April to June, we are helping people fight back against fraud and help protect them from identity theft by shredding truckloads of sensitive personal documents.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, AARP NY is highlighting three women who represent our partner groups in the #DisruptDisparities movement and were an integral part of our events throughout the launch year in 2018. We partnered with the NY Urban League, NY NAACP, Hispanic Federation and Asian American Federation to release a series of policy briefs highlighting disparities in health, economic security, and livability and these women were at the forefront of our events throughout New York, helping us shed light on the disparities, focused on New York’s 50-plus populations in these multicultural communities.
