An Easy Way to be an Advocate!
Elder Law of Michigan advocates on a wide variety of issues affecting people living in poverty, people living with disabilities and people who are age 60 years of age and older. With many important decisions being made by the Michigan Legislature and Congress, we need many voices to take a small bit of time to share their opinions on the direction our state and country should take. We also need help keeping the issue of elder abuse prevention front and center to continue to make improvements in the protections for vulnerable adults.
Would you like to join us? Please, join us! If you are interested, you can sign up to receive email alerts when important decisions are about to made so that you can make your opinion known. Usually there are easy opportunities to call, fax or email an elected official. You can also receive talking points to discuss with elected officials when you attend events locally.
Many of recall the first time we heard the phrase “the silent majority.” This is your invitation to be part of a growing and vocal minority who are standing up for the rights, health and economic security of people of all ages and circumstances! To sign up, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Sign me up to advocate!”
The frequency of opportunities will vary with current events!
