Advocacy and Community Conversations

We believe change and social impact are greater when everyone has a voice and nobody is invisible. We are increasing awareness of aging issues at every level across the state and, this year, we will be kicking off a series of community conversations in frontier, rural and exurban areas. We will listen and gather information that can be used to help communities realize their collective strengths and build their abilities to help older adults thrive. We feel that meaningful conversation is the key to making Oregon truly more age friendly, which is good for everyone. 

Our first Community Conversation will be in The Dalles, Oregon. Please check back here for updates on that conversation, as well as future conversations, or to join our communications list, email
