Get Involved

We can't do this alone

Senior poverty is not an individual problem.

Lack of economic opportunity and discrimination against women, people of color, LGBTQ people, and others lead to a lifetime of low-wage work that doesn’t leave enough at the end of every month for retirement savings. 

Structural issues in our economy including disappearing pensions and rising health care and housing costs, coupled with decades of disinvestment and cuts in vital programs put more people at risk of poverty as they age.
