About

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.
If you have an interest in current issues such as protecting Medicare and Social Security, supporting family caregivers and telecom protections this is a great way to get involved and make a direct impact. Advocacy Volunteers make a big difference by educating both community members and decision-makers about important issues that affect all of us as we age.

No prior experience or expertise in policy or legislative advocacy is needed to be a part of this team and create positive social change.
