PRIDE is Ageless - Make Your Voice Heard

At AARP, we work hard every day to fight for and equip individuals to live their best lives.  “What we do, we do for all,” is a guiding principle articulated by our founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, that we proudly carry forward.

We want to ensure that all older adults in the District can live life with dignity and purpose. We’re in neighborhoods across the city to meet LGBTQ older adults where you are and connect one-on-one to learn more about issues that are important to you – like caregiving and the inclusion of a caregiver from your family of choice in your health records.

Please stop by the AARP DC exhibit booth at these upcoming events, and make your voice heard on issues that matter to you and the ones you love!
