Aging Advocacy Day will be online
Attend Aging Advocacy Day 2022 Online!
Are you interested in issues affecting older adults? Join members of the Wisconsin Aging Advocacy Network (WAAN) and others to help educate state legislators about priority issues impacting Wisconsin’s aging population via this year’s virtual training and one-to-one personal phone calls.
No experience is necessary. You’ll get the training and support you need to hold effective meetings with state lawmakers in a 90-minute online training. Then put your training to use by placing a call to your State Senator and State Representative. You’ll present WAAN’s 2022 priorities and share related personal stories. Your experiences are important and help policymakers understand how specific policy issues and proposals impact older constituents and family caregivers.
