You’ve heard statistics like this before:
In 1990, on average, 10.4 percent of the region’s population was age 60 or older. By 2014, that share increased to 18.9 percent, and by 2040 more than 24 percent of the total population will be age 60 or older.
The region DRCOG is describing is our community. Aging issues will affect us all and in many ways are impacting everyone right now. We must make good decisions about how to use our resources and this takes planning and participation from everyone.
Make your voice heard!
What can you do? Join us March 30 at the Capitol for the 35th Annual Senior Day at the Capitol hosted by the Colorado Senior Lobby. This is your chance to hear from legislators and to let them know what matters to you.
This first part of the day will be in the historic Old Supreme Court Chamber in the North 2nd floor mezzanine of The Capitol. This is where we’ll meet legislators and learn more about what issues are in front of them right now.
The second half of the day will be at the Denver Consistory at 1370 Grant Street. This historic building, also known as the Scottish Rite Masonic Center, is just southeast of The Capitol. The afternoon features a panel of major organizations involved in senior issues and a chance to learn more about programs available for seniors.
Join us and the Colorado Senior Lobby on March 30, 2016. Get informed and make yourself heard.
