AARP’s advocacy team in Maryland is committed to improving the quality of life for older Marylanders and all Marylanders. We work with legislators and local organizations to strengthen health care quality and access, ensure reliable and affordable electricity, enhance long-term care services, and protect consumers from fraud and abuse.
Now, more than ever, your experience, leadership and enthusiasm are needed to address the issues we care about the most – our health and independence, financial security and our communities. As AARP Advocates, we educate, energize and mobilize our communities around important quality of life issues. We also advance AARP’s policy positions by contacting elected officials, testifying before committees, crafting letters to editor, gathering personal experiences to help strengthen AARP’s advocacy message to legislators and so much more.
AARP will keep you posted on the most accurate and up-to-date information about important legislation voted on in your state and national legislatures – giving you every opportunity to impact public policy decisions as they are happening.
