This Black History Month and beyond, it’s important to look for and celebrate the little things that bring us joy, as well as the big achievements and accomplishments. The joy of resilience. Of caring for others and ourselves during trying times. Of sharing our stories and our assistance. Of connecting with others, even if at a distance. This is a Joy Supreme.

While 2020 was a year filled with uncertainty, municipalities and community organizations across Washington still managed to put older residents’ needs front and center. We welcomed two cities - Tacoma and Renton - to the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities, joining our previous cities of Seattle and Puyallup.  Several non-profit agencies also received grants to address crucial pandemic-related issues, such as food insecurity and telehealth.
