    How to Host Your Legislators Link  Hosting your federal legislators gives them the chance to meet their elder constituent’s and learn more about your organizations work for older adults. It also gives you the opportunity to become a “go-to” community for policy makers when it comes to issues related to aging services.

FEDERAL:

  • Contact Congress – Tell the new Congress to prioritize America’s seniors and to those who serve them! Link
  • Seniors Action Network (SAN) is a grassroots movement organized to give America’s seniors a greater voice in public policy. The network recruits, educates, and trains advocates to take leadership in the formation of public policy by direct outreach to decision makers. LINK 

  • Legislation – LeadingAge articles, analyses and general information about legislation and laws that relate to aging and the services that LeadingAge members offer. Link

During the legislative session, LeadingAge Washington will highlight important issues through our weekly announcement “This Week in Olympia”  TWIO, and, when asked, we encourage you to visit our TAKE ACTION page to learn more about what you can to do influence policy making.
