AARP is pleased to announce AARP Colorado's new advocacy chair and vice chair for the 2017-18 Colorado Legislative session, which begins in January.
On Sunday, September 11th and Monday, September 12th, AARP DC volunteers and staff participated in the AARP Foundation's Celebration of Service Meal Pack Challenge. This year's Celebration of Service event paid tribute to all the veterans and retired first responders who have given so much of their lives in service to others. It also lifted senior poverty out of the shadows and shined a spotlight on the needs of older adults who are struggling to secure the essentials. With the help of over 3,000 volunteers, we packed 1.5 million meals for our region's struggling seniors!

Emergency officials, along with AARP and other activists, are opposing a 911 deregulation bill by the telecom industry for being anti-consumer and potentially unsafe.
Please call your legislator and ask that they protect your safety and vote NO on Senate Bill 183.
