LeadingAge to Hold National Day of Action for Older Adults on Sept. 23rd

With negotiations stalled on the next COVID-19 relief package, we need Congress to act for older adults before they leave Washington, DC. The Act for Older Adults campaign is rallying Americans from all walks of life to add their voice to ours. Join us tomorrow, Wed., Sept. 23rd, for a National Day of Action for aging services providers.

Members of Congress need to hear from providers who are on the front lines of this pandemic caring for and supporting residents, clients, staff, and families. An Action Alert being sent out tomorrow by LeadingAge National will make it easy for you, your staff, and your residents to send emails or make phone calls asking for essential relief for aging services providers. You can also support the campaign on social media. Follow, like, retweet, and repost! Be as active as you can, and consider using some of the below pre-written social media posts and these graphics on your platforms. Graphics provided include social media banners, campaign info-cards, quote cards from LeadingAge President and CEO Katie Smith Sloan and others, and countdown images for the Day of Action.
