Advocating for Michigan seniors is a key part of what the Area Agency on Aging 1-B does. But we can’t do it alone. We need the help, support and voices of our region’s older adults and aging network professionals and organizations.
You can become a voice for seniors in our region by joining our Senior Advocacy Network (SAN). SAN is made up of individuals and organizations that are committed to following public policy issues that affect older adults and speaking out on the behalf of seniors. SAN offers different ways to get involved depending on your interests and your availability.
If you would like to join our Senior Advocacy Network, contact the AAA 1-B advocacy specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Advocacy Department at (248) 262-9232.
Our 2023 Legislative Platform focuses on 16 key areas that will help older adults and family caregivers in our region stay living at home and in the community.
