Every May, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) leads our nation’s observance of Older Americans Month. We are pleased to announce the 2023 theme: "Aging Unbound".
This year's theme offers an opportunity to explore diverse aging experiences and discuss how communities can combat stereotypes by promoting flexible thinking about aging – and how we all benefit when older adults remain engaged, independent, and included. Visit the ACL website to learn more about Older Americans Month and how you can get involved.
Schedule an Engage with CO-AGE session! The purpose of Engage with CO-AGE is to inform the public about what we do and how they can get involved in advocacy while at the same time update CO-AGE members on the work that was done at the Capitol this year to advocate with and on behalf of older Georgians. If you would like GCOA to host an Engage with CO-AGE session with your group, please contact Patrice Parker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
