AARP Oregon is hosting a series of virtual town hall events from mid-June to mid-September to educate voters about topics such as caregiver support, age discrimination, financial security, fraud and aging in place. The state office plans to share the feedback with the candidates running for governor before the Nov. 8 election.
Our State, Our Future: AARP Oregon Member Virtual Townhalls will inform and empower members and lift and amplify their voices to educate gubernatorial candidates on how they can support an age-friendly state for Oregonians 50+ and their families. Help shape the future of Oregon—join our conversation.
AARP Oregon advocated on behalf of its more than 500,000 Oregon members during the short February 2022 session. With revenues surging, there were significant dollars allocated to workforce, housing, health care, transportation, childcare and education. We appreciate all the work of our AARP Oregon Legislative Advocacy Volunteer team as well as elected officials, and look forward to working with AARP members across the state to address issues that affect Oregonians 50+ and their families.
The AARP Oregon Women’s Summit will include a series of virtual events on caregiving, entrepreneurship, finance and other issues. One featured speaker will discuss how starting their own business could be a path toward financial security for those 50-plus.
When the next legislative session begins, on Tuesday, Jan. 19, AARP Oregon will push for better state oversight, more personal protective equipment, frequent testing of residents and staff, virtual visitations and paid sick leave for staffers who test positive.
