More Than Ever

Justice in Aging is means that, as we get older, we will have health care, be able to stay in our homes and communities, and have enough income to thrive. Since 1972, we’ve been working toward that vision for all of us. At Justice in Aging, we use the power of law to fight senior poverty and break down barriers for those who face the largest disparities in health and wealth. After 45 years, our work to protect the safety net is more important than ever.
