The coronavirus pandemic is threatening the health and financial security of all Alabamians but especially those age 50+. With so much going on, it’s hard to believe that it’s also an election year. And this season promises to be unlike any other. AARP Alabama encourages voters to request an absentee ballot for one, or all, 2020 elections, including the upcoming August 25th municipal elections happening in most cities in Alabama.
AARP Alabama is seeking nominations for the 2019 AARP Andrus Award for Community Service. The association's most prestigious volunteer tribute recognizes outstanding individuals age 50 and older who are sharing their experience, talents and skills to enrich the lives of others.
AARP is here to help you take on today – and every day. From sharing practical resources, to holding fun activities and events, AARP is providing opportunities to connect and help build an even stronger Alabama for all ages to live, work and play. We hope you’ll join us!
