#WeAreOAA Twitter Chat to Increase OAA Funding!
For over 50 years the Older Americans Act (OAA) has provided services to help millions of older adults every year age with health, independence and dignity in their homes and communities. In honor of Older Americans Month this May, please join n4a and the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations (LCAO) in spotlighting the importance of the OAA and advocating for OAA funding.
Join n4a and other aging advocates on May 24 to spread the word!
Join n4a, our national aging organization partners and other advocates on Tuesday, May 24 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. for the #WeAreOAA Twitter Chat to get the word out about OAA and tell Congress to increase funding for OAA.
Spread the word about this event!
We have graphics for use on social media and other materials available to download to help you spread the word about the need to increase funding for OAA. You can also use the #WeAreOAA Fact Sheet and Infographic to engage your networks and stakeholders in advocacy.
