In February, state residents can make their voices heard at three AARP South Dakota–sponsored legislative coffee events in Sioux Falls.
Participants will have a chance to submit written comments and questions to state lawmakers from their districts, who will participate on moderated panels. The sessions are just one of the many ways AARP is working to ensure that South Dakotans age 50-plus are well represented in Pierre.
The coffees are free and open to the public. They will take place at the HUB at Southeast Technical College, 2001 N. Career Ave., from 10 to 11:30 a.m., on three Saturdays:
- Feb. 5: Districts 6, 11 and 15
- Feb. 12: Districts 9, 13 and 14
- Feb. 26: Districts 10, 12 and 25
The sessions can be watched live or on demand at facebook.com/siouxfallschamber.
AARP South Dakota is always working to empower local volunteer advocates to help push for positive change at all levels of government on issues such as health care, support for family caregivers, fraud prevention and livable communities.
