On October 3, 2012, the District joined other aspirant-jurisdictions to become an Age-Friendly City as part of the pilot AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities through the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities. The goal of this program is to provide a system to educate, encourage, promote and recognize improvements that make cities, towns, and counties more user-friendly not only for their older residents, but for residents of all ages.
Voice your opinion on what will make the District age-friendly. Five public meetings will be held throughout the city where you can tell DC’s leadership what will make an Age-Friendly DC. AARP DC wants your feedback on what will help transform DC into a better place to live, work and play for people of all ages. See the locations of the five meetings, here.
