Grassroots Advocacy & Member Advocacy Tools Member Resources

Our goal is to develop a robust advocacy program that includes statewide grassroots activities throughout the year.

Grassroots advocacy is the active support of a cause, issue or policy at the local level rather than at the political center, such as Hartford or Washington, DC. A strong grassroots program can have a great impact on public policy.

LeadingAge Connecticut members' grassroots activity is important because:

  • Understanding long-term aging services is critical to developing effective public policy that impacts the delivery of services;
  • You and the people you serve are the best spokespersons for aging issues; And
  • Policymakers do want to hear from their constituents!
