Aging Services of Minnesota advocacy is only as strong as our members.   And our members have powerful voices that are affecting change!

Now is great time to put your voices and grassroots advocacy skills to work!  The legislature is officially on its Passover/Easter spring break, and many legislators are back in their districts.  Here are some things you can do to advocate for older adult services this week.

  1. Download information from our online grassroots advocacy toolkit
  2. Attend a legislative town hall meeting or “eggs and issues” breakfast to discuss older adult services, using the information provided in the toolkit
  3. Invite legislators to your care center or housing establishment to see the good work being done
  4. Write a letter to the editor using the information provided in the toolkit and submit this week so it is printed while legislators are home

Finally, don’t forget another great advocacy opportunity: District Days at the Capitol start next week!  Register now for your district’s meeting and come ready to advocate on behalf of older adult services!
