Share your message with Congress through Virtual Advocacy Day

Take action

Join colleagues across the country making sure Congress meets the needs of older adults.

During the 2019 NCOA Age+Action Conference, aging services professionals from 42 states will visit Capitol Hill. They will educate their Congressional delegations about their work to help seniors age with health, security, and independence.

You can support this effort! Share information about the needs of seniors in your community, and urge Congress to:

  • Make Medicare low-income benefits enrollment permanent
  • Reauthorize the Older Americans Act (OAA),
  • Invest in aging services.

Learn more about these issues below, and visit our Action Center to send your message on one or more of these important issues.

Meet your lawmakers while in DC!

Visiting Washington, DC, is a great opportunity to meet with your members of Congress to educate them about the important work you do every day and the needs of older adults in your community.

Join us on Wednesday, June 19, for Hill Day — a chance to visit Congress along with other conference attendees. There is no cost to participate, and bus transportation will be provided. You will receive support and resources to empower you to tell the story of the people you serve.

Hill Day is an optional event at the conference, and you are not required to participate. You also can meet with your members of Congress at other times during the conference if that works better for your schedule.
