Regional Forums to Provide Ideas for 2015 White House Conference on Aging

Website up and running to share information on updates, events and activities

By Cecilia Muņoz, White House Blog

Cecilia Muņoz is Assistant to the President and Director of the Domestic Policy CouncilJan. 13, 2015 - Today, I am delighted to announce the launch of a series of regional forums to engage older Americans, their families, caregivers, advocates, community leaders, and experts on aging on the key issues affecting older Americans. These forums are designed to help provide input and ideas for the upcoming 2015 White House Conference on Aging. 

Over the past several months, we have been preparing for the 2015 White House Conference on Aging along with the Conference’s Executive Director, Nora Super, by establishing a Conference website, and participating in a number of listening sessions and meetings across the country.

This will include regional forums, the first of which will be in Tampa, FL on February 19. Subsequent forums will be held in Phoenix, AZ on March 31; Seattle, WA on April 9; Cleveland, OH on April 27; and Boston, MA on May 28.

Each will allow us to hear directly from the public on issues such as ensuring retirement security, promoting healthy aging, providing long-term services and support, and protecting older Americans from financial exploitation, abuse, and neglect. They will also help us to reach older Americans and their caregivers, advocates, and other stakeholders where they live.

The regional forums are co-sponsored by AARP and being planned in coordination with the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations, a coalition of more than 70 of the nation’s leading organizations serving older Americans. While participation is by invitation, all of the events will be live webcast to engage as many people as possible.

This Administration is committed to aging issues, and the 2015 White House Conference on Aging is an opportunity to look ahead to the issues that will help shape the landscape for older Americans for the next decade. We are dedicated to promoting policies that benefit elderly – and ultimately all – Americans. 

As we prepare for the 2015 White House Conference, we want your voice to be part of the conversation. Go to our website to learn more about the Conference, to sign up for updates on its events and activities, and to tell us your thoughts and stories.

Financial Relief for Volkswagen Diesel Owners

You may be eligible for money damages if you owned or leased one of these VW, Porsche or Audi vehicles.

In the major scandal of 2015, Volkswagen cheated you and the world. They rigged diesel emission controls so you, nor regulators, would know how much pollution their cars were adding to our environment.

They were caught and have reserved $7.3 billion to help "make it right" with victims.

If you owned or leased one of these vehicles, contact us now.
