Over 220 advocates, partners, supporters, attorneys, friends, and family members joined us at our sold-out award reception, Celebrate Justice in Aging, at City Club Los Angeles. The event was a chance for us to celebrate our new name, recognize shared commitment to fighting senior poverty, and rally together for Justice in Aging for all people.

Would you like to know more about our day to day work? Visit our video page and take a look at some short videos we’ve created that show both the scope of the problem of senior poverty, and what we’re doing to solve it.
6.3 million elderly Americans are living in poverty. As income inequality increases and 10,000 people turn 65 every day, the number of poor seniors is growing exponentially. People in our communities are suffering. Mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts, and uncles are struggling to buy food, keep the heat on, afford medication, and visit their doctors.
