AARP Texas is working to bridge the digital divide. Those without access to high-speed internet tend to be older adults living in rural areas, regions that also lack access to health care.
Six Texas areas received AARP Community Challenge grants this year to fund quick-action projects, including a neighborhood garden, murals and upgraded crosswalks.
AARP volunteers do everything from addressing state and federal legislators about issues of importance to the 50-plus population, to public speaking, to telephone town halls or behind-the-scenes organizing.
