Senior Voices for Aging in Community House Meeting on Zoom

Senior Voices for Aging in the Community
House Meeting on Zoom
Join Bill Flynn and Linda Katz for an opportunity to share your stories about "aging in the community during the pandemic" and learn about what’s working, what isn’t. We will introduce and discuss legislative and policy priorities for older adults and their caregivers in 2021 and how to build more senior power. We also will discuss the state budget and how sufficient revenue can be raised to pay for vital government services, including access to long-term care services in the community. This event will occur on both Thursday, November 12, and Wednesday, November 18.  Please register for only one session, as both sessions will cover the same topics. Each session is limited to 12 registrants.
