Are you interested in issues affecting older adults? Join members of the Wisconsin Aging Advocacy Network (WAAN) and others to help educate state legislators about issues affecting Wisconsin’s aging population.
Citizens from around the state will gather on Wednesday, May 16th, in Madison for a day of advocacy training and meetings with legislators. No experience necessary, because you’ll get the training and support you need before meeting with state lawmakers. Then join others from your district to provide legislators with information on how their votes will affect older adults.
