Sharing our stories.  Exploring our past.
Securing our future.

We know that stories have the power to open hearts and change minds—that’s why we share them. When we talk to policy makers about our issues—such as the negative implications of reducing Social Security benefits or why we must expand Medicaid nationwide—we are in essence sharing our stories.  We share the stories of the many older adults whose only financial safety nets are their monthly Social Security checks and how further cutting benefits would have a disproportionate impact on elders of color and LGBT elders. Browse from the stories below from older adults and their loved ones as well as from advocates.

We’re changing the aging narrative one story at a time.  Explore our stories—and tell your own.
