To honor and celebrate this important anniversary, AARP Oregon has several events planned.

Across Oregon, from the high deserts to the temperate coast, Oregonians love their communities and envision a future where they can continue to live and thrive where they live. That is the overwhelming conclusion of the Building a Communities for All Ages: Age-Friendly Oregon listening tour that AARP Oregon conducted in the summer and fall of 2019. Findings from the statewide tour, which included community conversations in thirteen communities spanning the state, as well as interviews with community leaders and subject matter experts representing diverse sectors and geographies, will be available for distribution in May 2019.

AARP research tell us that transportation and mobility options are fundamental to our well-being as we grow older. But too often, lack of accessible, reliable transportation options keep older adults and people with disabilities from participating in everyday activities or meeting basic needs.
