As part of AARP’s "You’ve Earned a Say", Arizona AARP will be hosting a series of community conversations and tele town halls throughout the state designed to give Arizonans an opportunity to have their voice heard on how to strengthen America’s health and retirement security.

“You’ve Earned a Say is about taking the debate about Medicare and Social Security out from behind closed doors in Washington and making sure that Arizonans and all Americans have a voice in the discussion about their future,” said David Mitchell, AARP Arizona State Director.
Already, Arizona AARP You’ve Earned a Say events have been held in Phoenix, Prescott and Tucson with more being scheduled. The forums offer voters an opportunity to speak out on ways to strengthen Medicare and Social Security.
“We hope people will turn out for these community conversations because it’s important that everyone have a voice in this debate,” said David Mitchell, AARP Arizona State Director.
In addition to the local events, Arizona AARP will also be hosting a series of tele town halls over the coming months in which thousands of AARP members from across the state will be invited to attend. The first was held on March 19 in which over 6300 Arizonans joined by conference call.
“Tele town halls are a great way to reach thousands of our members to invite them to participate in this national dialog from the comfort of their own home,” added Mitchell.
To find out if there is a You’ve Earned a Say event near you, please call the AARP Arizona state office toll free at 866-389-5649.
“It’s important that people lend their voice to this debate,” said Mitchell. “We encourage everyone to take the You’ve Earned a Say survey to make their voice heard.”
