22nd Annual Senior Advocacy Day at City Hall

Wednesday, May 3, 2017

What is Senior Advocacy Day?

Year after year seniors come to City Hall and 250 Broadway to demand their fair share of the city's budget - and this year will be no different! Acting as representatives for their senior center/program, seniors who are unable to attend and the entire network of aging services, seniors make their voices heard during a vibrant rally, as well as during meetings with their respective City Council Members.

Our message is clear: 2017 is the Year of the Senior.

Who should attend? 

One staff member and one or two seniors from each senior center/program - due to space limitations this is the maximum number of attendees per center/program.  You will join other groups from your City Council Member's district in a meeting to discuss the important issues.   If you have additional people who would like to attend, they can attend the Press Conference where there is more room.

When & Where?

  • Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017
  • The Press Conference: 11:00 AM on the steps of City Hall
