Approximately 45 million Americans are age 65 or older. By 2030, that number will reach 73 million Americans. At that point, fully one in five Americans will be older than 65. By 2034, the United States will — for the first time ever — be a country comprised of more older adults than of children. AARP Livable Communities supports the efforts of neighborhoods, towns, cities and rural areas to be great places for people of all ages. We believe that communities should provide safe, walkable streets; age-friendly housing and transportation options; access to needed services; and opportunities for residents of all ages to participate in community life.
The last several years have shown us the importance of being prepared for an uncertain future, and that includes having savings to depend on. Unfortunately, thousands of Vermonters who work for themselves or small businesses have no retirement benefits at work. The truth is that many small businesses want to be able to provide a workplace retirement savings option, but can’t because of how expensive and time consuming it is.
Advocating for what is important to our members and giving you a voice at the state and federal levels is a priority for AARP Vermont. Your voice matters. We work with local organizations and town and city officials on making our communities more livable and greater places to age with dignity and purpose.
Advocating for 50-Plus Vermont Residents & Their Families
In the early 1900s, the Greenwood neighborhood of Tulsa, Oklahoma, now called "Black Wall Street," was a vibrant and prosperous community. Despite the challenges and racial injustices they faced, residents of this community built a thriving neighborhood filled with successful Black-owned businesses, attorneys, doctors, and real estate agents. Their achievements were nothing short of remarkable and served as a beacon of hope for Black Americans nationwide.
