In partnership with the state staff, advocacy volunteers work to enhance the quality of life for older Minnesotans through civic engagement on AARP legislative priorities, such as direct communication with legislators and engagement with the public. As an advocacy volunteer you have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities including:
- Advocating for AARP positions on state and federal issues with elected officials through in-person meetings, letters, emails and phone calls.
- Attending legislative hearings and provide testimony when appropriate
- Attending AARP’s lobby day at the State Capitol
- Attending meetings in your district as needed and writing letters to the editor for your community newspapers on AARP issues.
No prior experience or expertise in policy or legislative advocacy is needed to be a part of this team and create positive social change.
