About Us

Justice in Aging is a national non-profit legal advocacy organization that fights senior poverty through law.

What We Believe

Justice in Aging is the opportunity to live with dignity, regardless of financial circumstances—free from the worry, harm, and injustice caused by lack of health care, food, or a safe place to sleep. By using the law to strengthen the social safety net, and remove the barriers low-income seniors face in trying to access the services they need, we work to ensure the future we all envision for our loved ones and ourselves.

Who We Are

Justice in Aging is a national organization that uses the power of law to fight senior poverty by securing access to affordable health care, economic security, and the courts for older adults with limited resources. Since 1972, we’ve focused our efforts primarily on those who have been marginalized and excluded from justice such as women, people of color, LGBTQ individuals, and people with limited English proficiency.

How We Work

We train and provide free resources to thousands of professional advocates and legal aid attorneys per year across the country in order to help them better serve older adults’ needs. From these on-the-ground partners we hear about specific issues older adults are facing in trying to meet their needs and then we advocate at the local, state, and federal level to fix those issues. When necessary, we go to courts to fight for justice and get older adults the resources they need.Learn more about how we work

Our Internal Commitment To Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion

We are committed to addressing the pernicious effects of systemic power and privilege in the workplace, paying particular attention to how privilege has historically given, and currently gives, advantage to some groups and individuals over others. We believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion is essential to our success as an organization, and empowers us to more effectively advance equity in our work. When we better reflect the communities we serve, our ability to identify and understand the needs of those communities grows, and our work has a greater impact.

Our Funders

Justice in Aging is grateful for its wonderful foundation funders. With their support and collaboration, we are improving health care, long-term care, and retirement security for low-income older adults. By working together, we can build more equitable systems that address the harms of racism and discrimination for older adults of color, so that all of us may thrive as we grow older.
