AARP represents the needs of nearly 38 million members with lifestyles and political views as diverse as any group in the United States. Developing public policy recommendations that serve such diversity is a formidable task. We concentrate on the issues most important to those in the 50-plus community as they age: economic security; health care; access to affordable, quality long-term care; creating and maintaining livable communities; consumer protections; and ensuring that our democracy works better for all.
These policies are published every two years in The Policy Book: AARP Public Policies and in regular supplements to The Policy Book.
The AARP Office of Policy Integration coordinates the activities of the NPC. For more information, call 202-434-3720.
