Since 1950, we’ve walked beside generations of Americans. Perhaps you didn’t see us. But we were there—quietly making life better as we age.
We were the first national voice for older adults. We helped end mandatory retirement. We advocated to secure Medicare, Medicaid, and the Older Americans Act. Local organizations turned to us for support as they served older adults every day. And we built digital tools that empower older adults with knowledge.
Now, we’re stepping forward to do even more. Americans are living longer, but far too many are being left behind without the resources to age with dignity.
We’re changing that.
We believe aging well is something every American deserves—regardless of gender, color, sexuality, income, or zip code.
We will deliver the resources, tools, best practices, and advocacy our nation needs to ensure that every person can age with health and financial security.
That’s our renewed promise to you. You have an even stronger ally.
Because aging well for all is a matter of equity. A matter of dignity. And a matter of justice.
