Advocacy

California Commission on Aging serves “as the principal advocate body in the state on behalf of older individuals, including, but not limited to, advisory participation in the consideration of all legislation and regulations made by state and federal departments and agencies relating to programs and services that affect older individuals.” Welfare & Institutions Code 9202 (a).

The CCoA takes this responsibility seriously, responding to policy, program, and budget proposals that impact the well-being and rights of older Californians. Read the CCoA’s latest advocacy correspondence here:
