AARP DC Needs Volunteers to Advocate for Residents 50-plus

DC-Advocacy and Elections013

AARP District of Columbia advocates for the 50-plus population before the city government.

Want to join the effort? AARP DC is looking for volunteer ward liaisons to represent the organization at government and community meetings.

The liaisons lead advocacy efforts and build relationships with local Advisory Neighborhood Commission members.

Ward liaisons may be asked to testify before the city council, attend community meetings and disseminate AARP resources.

Volunteers are needed as the council prepares its budget. Earlier this year, for example, ward liaisons fought for funding for senior nutrition programs.

Training is provided, and the time commitment is based on the volunteer’s schedule.

Interested? Email dcaarp@aarp .org or call 202-434-7700.
