I wanted to make you an aware of a political event taking place today in our nation’s capital, and one in which I am participating.
Today, hundreds of LeadingAge members, older adults, and partners will participate in the “Save HUD 202 Rally” on Capitol Hill. At the rally, we will hear from members of the Senate and Congress, residents, and providers as we raise our voices together to protect and expand affordable housing for older adults.
As I discussed in an earlier blog entry, our country is facing a crisis regarding affordable housing for our older adult population. We want to make our voices heard to the movers and shakers at the Capitol who can have tremendous influence on how we effectively address this critical issue.
You can also show your support by posting your own message on the social media platform of your choice. Please use #SaveHUD202 to join the campaign’s conversation on social media.
I hope you watch the livestream of the event on Facebook. At 12:30 p.m. ET, LeadingAge will begin streaming video of the crowd arriving and at 1 p.m. the rally starts! Visit www.facebook.com/leadingage to tune in.
