In this flexible volunteer role, you will help raise awareness of AARP and fight to protect programs and services upon which many DC residents rely. Things like nutrition access, affordable housing and prescriptions, and funding for social service programs are a few items we are fighting for as we speak.
In this role, you’ll be an representative of your ward and share the needs of those seniors with our State Director. Additionally, you may be asked to assist with our advocacy priorities, testifying before DC Council, attending community meetings, and disseminating resources in your community. You will become a familiar face in the community. We ask for a minimum of 1 hour per month, including our monthly team call.
