While next year’s presidential election is garnering more and more attention, it’s important to remember that in Fort Wayne and in communities across the state, there’s a critical election coming this year.
At AARP, we have a proud 32-year history of non-partisan voter engagement, providing voters with information on where the candidates stand on issues important to our members and their families, so they can make their own decisions on Election Day.
Most Americans agree that family comes first, but the U.S. is the only industrialized country without paid family and medical leave. In one of the richest countries in the world, having a baby, a medical emergency, or an aging parent can erase a person's financial future.
AARP hosted I ndiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson on the evening of July 18 th for a telephone town hall to discuss the upcoming election in November. Callers from across the state asked questions ranging from how to request an absentee ballot to what Indiana is doing to protect the security of Hoosiers’ votes.
Here in Indiana, 837,000 Hoosiers care for an older parent, spouse or other loved one, helping them live independently at home—where they want to be. These family caregivers take on huge responsibilities that can be overwhelming, stressful and exhausting. They juggle full- or part-time jobs, and many are still raising families.
Here at AARP, we know that you have a lifetime of experience to offer. If you are looking for a way to share it, we can help. As an AARP volunteer within the Hoosier State you will be front and center in helping to achieve meaningful and impactful change at a local, state, and federal level while having fun along the way! Whether your interests lie in fighting fraud and scams, supporting family caregivers, making your community more safe and secure for people of all ages, or ensuring you and your loved ones financial security is sturdy for years to come, volunteering for AARP may be right for you.
