About AARP

The District of Columbia State Office is helping you discover the real possibilities in your life at any age. AARP DC strives to ensure that older adults and their families in the District of Columbia live their best lives. We contribute to, excel in, and deliver on AARP’s mission and purpose. Our work is localized, integrated and accomplished by a dynamic team of volunteers and staff working across all eight wards to support the Age-Friendly DC initiative to make the District a great place for all ages to live, work and play! There are more than 87,000 AARP members in Washington, DC.
Here at AARP, we are committed to helping all older adults live their lives with dignity and honor — that includes those who are lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) and others.
My four-year tenure as the State President of AARP DC comes to a close on December 31, 2018. It has been an honor to serve on behalf of the 186,000 DC residents who are over the age of 50, including the 87,000 who are AARP members.
